    "Funghi Porcini Secchi"

     

    Porcini Mushrooms are probably the most famous and sought after variety of mushroom in the UK.  These popular little mushrooms add a strong, earthy and nutty flavour to a variety of popular dishes.

     

    The fresh Porcini season runs from October to January/February time, depending on how wet the winter is.  But it is dried Porcini which are much more widely available. They are sliced before drying and it is the drying process which gives them such an intense flavour. 

     

    When choosing dried porcini you should avoid the packets which are full of crumbs as they indicate an inferior quality.  

     

    Try them....

    Use them to give a unique flavour to risottos, pasta sauces, soups, casseroles and countless other dishes.  Just rehydrate them in warm water for 10 minutes and add the lot to enjoy the bold porcini flavour.

     

    Storage

    Although not essential we would recommend keeping them in the fridge to maintain freshness.

     

    Our Producer 

    Oliveri have been producing products that capture the flavour of the land since the 1920s when Emilio, the grandfather of the family began working with mushrooms in Piancastagna, a little village located a few miles from Acqui Terme in the southern region of Piedmont.  A new line of products were introduced when Attilio, his son, joined him and fruits and vegetables, cultivated and selected by people living on the land, were transformed into delicious preserves and specialities. Today grandson Emilio leads the Oliveri company, striving for even higher quality and fuller flavour in their products.
