Porcini mushrooms are a gourmet delicacy, widely considered among the finest mushrooms in the world, and they can be incorporated into a number of recipes. One company in Northern Italy has used them to infuse this white balsamic vinegar mousse with the nutty quality of freshly picked mushrooms, creating a magical, all-purpose mousse you can use with countless meals.
The primary ingredient is white balsamic vinegar, made using grapes harvested from foothills near Modena, Italy. Here, seasonal shifts in temperature assist in the creation process, with winter chills improving sedimentation, and summer heat augmenting evaporation. Added soy flour gives the balsamic vinegar a thicker solidity, while air bubbles add that foamy, smooth texture every great mousse needs.
What really sets this mousse apart, though, is the addition of Porcini mushroom, with its hazelnut color and earthy notes of sweet and sour. This brings the white balsamic mousse to a higher level of finesse, creating a product unlike any other on the market. It also comes packaged in an elegant aerosol can that will look great on your kitchen shelf.
You can use this mousse to decorate and improve almost any dish, whether it be a fish, meat, vegetable or pasta-based main, or a smaller appetizer, hors d’oeuvre or snack. Either way, it’s sure to bring refinement and inventiveness to your cooking repertoire.
Our Porcini mushroom mousse was created by Terra Del Tuono, an Italian family-run business whose mission is to produce top quality balsamic vinegar of Modena. By using traditional methods passed down generation to generation, and by taking advantage of the unique changing seasons of northern Italy, they formulate balsamic vinegar products that are innovative, sophisticated, and imbued with the flavors of nature.
