Dried European Porcini Mushrooms
Dried European Grade A Porcini have a rich, intense porcini flavor that is perfect for soups, stews, sauces and other prepared dishes. Grade A generally consists of smaller pieces than Grade AA and is of somewhat darker color, but is perfectly suitable for almost any preparation. In fact, many of our customers prefer it to Grade AA!
Delectable fresh or dried, Porcini mushrooms are among the most sought after of all wild-harvest mushrooms. Italians affectionately call them Porcini (the piglet), so-called for their plump form as they are found on the forest floor. In France they are known as Cepes; to the Germans they are Steinpilz.
Because of their remarkable flavor and meaty texture, Porcini mushrooms are one of the most highly prized wild-harvested mushrooms in the world. The robust, earthy flavor of Porcini lends itself to countless dishes from savory sauces for meat or poultry to pastas, omelets and polenta.
If you're really searching for authentic flavor, dried porcini can make the difference. Dried Porcini have a concentrated flavor and heady mushroom aroma that is fantastic in risotto, soups and truly amazing sauces.
