What are your thoughts on rinsing mushrooms?
I've heard some strong opinions on whether you should rinse mushrooms or not -- some say they'll absorb too much water and you should wipe them with a damp towel instead (kitchen pet peeve alert!).
But one very fastidious chef-instructor of mine in culinary school insisted that mushrooms are dirty things -- so she quickly washes all kinds, except delicate shiitakes. Where do you stand?
