These richly flavoured gourmet mushroom delicacy are invaluable when it comes to making a risotto. Otherwise the popular Italian rice dish can be bland and same tasting when you come near to eating your plate.
Porcini are so delicious in stir-fries, risottos, stews, pasta bakes, omelettes and Italian dishes – pretty much any dish where a mushroom would be a good inclusion.
The dried mushrooms need soaking in hot water before use. But reserve the water and use as stock for your dish. The flavours and aromas of porcini mushrooms are exceptional and if you love the taste of mushrooms, look no further!
