Description 

 

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, porcini may be featured in savory sauces to accompany meat or poultry. Excellent in risottos, omelettes, or served with polenta.

The Woodcutter's Wife's Pasta
The Italian translation is "Maccheroncini allo Boscaiuola," but in any language this dish is succulent and saturated with provocative, musky flavors.

Presumably, woodcutters found wild mushrooms in the forest, and their wives obviously knew what to do with them! This dish is simple to prepare and very easy to eat.

Pasta Carbonara with Mushrooms
Rich, delicious and satisfying Pasta Carbonara is one of Rome's most famous dishes. Its origins are somewhat obscure, but it was almost certainly invented in the mid-20th century, most likely at the end of World War II when many Italians were eating eggs and bacon supplied by American troops. The classic elements of the dish are constant: eggs, cheese, black pepper and cured pork (usually guanciale or pancetta).

This is not a "saucy" dish - there is just enough of the rich, savory mixture of whole eggs, cheese and pancetta to coat each strand of spaghetti. Our version differs slightly from the traditional Italian recipe with the addition of mushrooms, but we think you'll agree that it adds a deliciously wonderful touch of flavor.

Chicken Wellington
This stunning variation on the classic Beef Wellington features a boneless breast of chicken, topped with a mushroom-pâté mixture and paper thin-slices of cured duck prosciutto, all enveloped in a tender, flaky puff pastry crust.

Whether you choose to serve it with or without a sauce, the result is an amazing dish that will wow your dinner guests and earn you rave reviews.

Spaghetti Con Funghi e Carciofi
This updated version of an Italian classic is perfectly suited to the modern American kitchen. The naturally sweet, delicate flavor of artichokes is the perfect counterpoint to the rich savory taste of porcini mushrooms.
