Portobello – pronounced (por-toh-BEHL-loh) and also called Portabella is really simply a brown crimini mushroom in disguise. Evidently the usage of the two words “portobello vs. portabella” is simply an issue of a marketing brand. Once the little brown Crimini Mushroom grows up to be about 4” – 6” in diameter he is deemed to be a “Portobello”. To confuse things further, the Portobello in Northern Italy is called “cappellone” which means “big hat”. Here at home, the Portobellos in the U.S. have become the “vegetarian’s meat”. Grilled, they have a very meaty texture and are served as salad toppings and even as a burger. They are also a perfect companion for polenta and can be stuffed and baked as deep fried once batter dipped.
