Porcini Mushroom is sold both fresh and dried, are prized in Italian and French cuisine. These popular mushrooms (also known as king bolete or cèpe in French) are cultivated in Europe, North America, and parts of Asia, and grow naturally in pine forests at the base of trees.
What Do Porcini Mushroom Taste Like?
Porcini mushroom is often described as nutty and earthy with a meatiness in flavor and texture. They have a similar taste to other, more common mushrooms, but with a deeper and nuttier flavor. Fresh mushrooms have a tender, meaty texture when cooked. Dried porcini add a deep, mushroom flavor to broths or sauces and, once rehydrated, have a slightly chewy texture.
How to Store Porcini Mushroom?
Store fresh, unwashed porcini mushroom in a loose paper bag in the crisper of the fridge. They’ll keep for a few days, but don’t wait to cook these precious fungi. They’re best used right away. Dried porcini should be kept in an airtight container in a dark, cool (but not cold) place for up to six months.
What is Black Truffle Spread?
A savory and earthy blend (pesto-like consistency) of summer truffles, button mushrooms, parsley, and olive oil.
Our Black Truffle Spread is a delicious, hearty blend of ingredients including black summer truffles, champignon mushrooms, parsley, garlic, and olive oil. It is perfectly used alone as a sauce for pasta, or to give an earthy flavor to cream or butter sauces.
Truffle spread is made by blending fresh black truffles with fine olive oil, a bit of truffle juice for a more intense flavor, plus some truffle aroma to intensify the whole experience. The chunky spread is heady with truffle flavor and aroma, and it’s also super versatile.
