Delectable fresh or dried, Porcini mushrooms are among the most sought after of all wild-harvest mushrooms. Porcini means "little pigs" in Italian, 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.
With a rich, earthy flavor and heady aroma, dried porcini mushrooms may be featured in savory sauces to accompany meat or poultry. Excellent in risottos, omelettes, served with polenta or in your own favorite porcini recipes.
