Ideas and Tips
Porcini mushrooms are highly regarded in the food world, especially in French and Italian cuisine. Food connoisseurs around the world extol this mushroom for its incredible flavour and texture. Porcini means ‘little pigs’ in Italian but is also known as king bolete, or ceps in France. The formal name is boletus edulis and in England, they are called penny buns because the tops resemble crusty bread rolls. Their brown caps can range in size from one inch to up to a foot and they have thick white stalks.
