Funghi Porcini has been described as the most rewarding of all fungi in the kitchen for its taste and versatility. The flavour has been described as nutty and slightly meaty, with a smooth, creamy texture, and a distinctive aroma reminiscent of sour-dough. Funghi Porcini is well suited to drying — its flavour intensifies, it is easily reconstituted by soaking in hot, but not boiling, water for about twenty minutes; the water used is infused with the mushroom aroma and it too can be used in subsequent cooking.
