As a recently born again mushroom addict I am making up for lost time. I am always on the look out for new varieties to try and Porcini are my current favourite. 🙂

I buy them dried from France as they don’t grow wild in Australia and they have resisted domestication. When you open the packet you are rewarded with a lovely nutty umami smell. They taste just as good and I use them as a flavour base in my stews, casseroles and soups.

Dietary Info: Great for vegetarians,  vegans and is gluten free.

Fresh they look stunning and I would love to get my hands on some.

Try them in my PK’s Slow Cooked Beef Bourguignon.

Enjoy,

PK
