What are Porcini Mushrooms?
Pronounced (pore-chee-nee), these mushrooms are widely recognized as the most popular in Europe and the United States. In Italian, Porcini means ‘little piglets,’ a name that denotes their fat stem and squat appearance. Growing under evergreens and deciduous trees, you’ll also find them traveling under the monikers: Bolete and Cepe.
Reddish brown on the cap and almost white near the margin with a texture akin to meat and a nutty flavor, the porcini is endlessly versatile. Once dried, all the tempting characteristics of the porcini are concentrated and enhanced, making the dried version of this famous mushroom one of the most popular.
