Dried Italian Porcini "Extra"
Autumn is coming.
Nothing signals the arrival of Autumn in the North of Italy like the sudden abundance of mushrooms in the woods.
10 dry days after the last summer shower, a small miracle happens and the undergrowth starts getting busier than ever with ‘fungi’ of every size and colour popping up under the chestnuts, the beeches and the oaks.
All around the tree leaves start turning into gold and the bistros and restaurants rush to update their menus with the long awaited seasonal delicacies like
funghi fritti (fried mushrooms), funghi trifolati (sauteed mushrooms), funghi ripieni (stuffed mushrooms) and the traditional risotto ai funghi (mushrooms risotto). It’s the time of Porcini, one of the most precious ingredients of Italian cuisine.
The King of mushrooms.
Porcino (Boletus Edilis or Penny bun in English) is considered the king of mushrooms, famous for its intense but delicate taste and its aroma reminiscent of hazelnut, liquorice and fresh wood. Delicious, with a great texture and extremely versatile Porcini have been “interpreted” by chefs from every part of world as simple starters, elaborate mains or unexpected desserts.
From Cuneo for your best risotto.
The Inaudis have been obsessed with Porcini since the 1940's, with their shop considered the go to place for mushrooms in the province of Cuneo in the 50's and 60's. After establishing their company in 1971 in Borgo San Dalmazzo (Cuneo), they quickly become the quality brand of choice for fresh mushroom, dried mushrooms and mushrooms in olive oil, never losing their authenticity and their passion for top quality products.
Like 60 years ago they select only the best fresh Porcini mushrooms, they hand-slice and dry them to bring you the taste of these fragrant fruits of nature all year long.
Dried Porcini are perfect for risotti, soups and sauces. It’s enough to soak them for about 20 minutes in warm water to bring back all their original, intense, wonderful flavour. King of mushrooms, heroes of the palate.
