Italian chef and restaurateur Antonio Carluccio has described the Porcini as representing “the wild mushroom par excellence”, and hails it as the most rewarding of all fungi in the kitchen for its taste and versatility.
It is well suited to drying — its flavour intensifies, is easily reconstituted, and its resulting texture is pleasant. The addition of a few pieces of dried porcino can significantly add to flavour, and they are a major ingredient of the pasta sauce known as carrettiere. The drying process is known to induce the formation of various volatile substances that contribute to the mushroom’s aroma.
