For us home cooks and even for most restaurants, cultivated mushrooms are the most available, affordable and easy-to-use. I do buy dried mushrooms of all sorts, but most Asian dried mushrooms are stronger than the taste of most American eaters. I do buy them for just us, but am a bit careful about using them on some of my Midwestern freinds. Tree ears are a favorite, for their crunchy texture. But a lot of folk simply haven't experienced them, don't know how to cook with them, and you won't see them outside of cities that have a good sized Asian clientelle.

I mostly use cultivated mushrooms, such as portabella. I have tried shitake, oyster, and porcini mushrooms, but prefer the texture and taste of the portabella .

xxd- I don't know that my Uncle uses the Internet much for chatting, to be honest. If there is a specific question on mushrooms that you want answered, I can find out if he knows the answer.

I buy the various Asian dried mushrooms at an Asian grocery store (a Vietnamese couple own it) in Dubuque, Iowa -- now. In Daytona, Florida there was a very similar store run by a Korean man, and in Madison, Wisconsin also. When I lived in Hawaii and also when I travelled a lot, I bought them in various "China Towns". Because these locations don't have a really huge Asian population, they tend to feature ALL Asian foods -- many kinds of rice, sometimes cooking and serving wares from many countries, the works. Since they last so long, I don't remember how much the mushrooms cost (you tend to use fewer because that have a strong flavor).
