Laetiporus sulphureus
Laetiporus sulphureus is a species of bracket fungus (fungi that grow on trees) found in Europe and North America. Due to its taste, Laetiporus sulphureus has been called the "chicken polypore" and "chicken-of-the-woods" Many people also think that the mushroom tastes like crab or lobster leading to the nickname "lobster-of-the-woods". The authors of Mushrooms in Color said that the mushroom tastes good sauteed in butter or prepared in a cream sauce served on toast or rice.Photograph credit: Agnes Monkelbaan
