Oh Shoot...

Willow has been bringing down bamboo shoots to the Ferry Building Shop and she asked me about cooking with them. They are quite easy to use and delicious. I saute them with peas as in this demonstration but I've used them with fava beans and added them to soups also. The shoots add a firm, creamy texture with a mild but distinctive flavor.
