The chestnut or cremini mushroom is closely related to the white mushroom and is similar in size and shape. The difference is its brown colour and nutty flavour. In addition, chestnut mushrooms have a lower water content, so they shrink less when cooked. The taste of the chestnut mushrooms is intense, strong and highly flavoured and their texture is similar to meat. The chestnut mushrooms are available all year long and they can also be refrigerated for longer periods of time.
