Lepista nuda (also recognized as Clitocybe nuda and Tricholoma nudum, and commonly known as the wood blewit or blue stalk mushroom), is an edible mushroom, found in bothconiferous and deciduous woodlands. It is a fairly distinctive mushroom that is widely eaten, though there is some caution about edibility. Nevertheless it has been cultivated in Britain, theNetherlands and France.
The Bluefoot Mushrooms is a cultivated cousin of the wild Wood Blewit mushroom. Bluefoot have a very firm texture on a wonderful lilac coloring on the stem of the mushroom (which loses color through cooking). Bluefoot are great in sauces and stews and hold up well to sauteing due to their firm fibrous texture.
Bluefoot mushrooms are grown in France and are available year-round.
