Matsutake mushrooms

Tida | Dec 1, 200011:09 AM

Has anyone seen matsutakes in the Bay Area? I usually buy my mushrooms at the Ferry bldg. farmers' market on Saturdays but have not seen these there.

I don't know too much about mushrooms and have only started experimenting with different varieties in my cooking. I love earthy, chewy, "meaty" mushrooms like porcinis. I had some matsutakes in a stewed rabbit/red-wine dish at Foreign Cinema last week, they exhibited the qualities I just listed, and it blew me away. So now I'm on a matsutake hunt. Any help would be appreciated!
