Giuliano’s Classic Dried Wild Porcini Mushrooms

Giuliano’s mother would always buy these when they were available at the one specialty store in Venice that carried them. Just a few will endow even cultivated white mushrooms with the rich flavor of porcini. Packaged by the fourth generation of the Pagnan family, renowned mushroom experts of the Veneto. Soak in lukewarm water at least 30 minutes before using and incorporate the richly flavored soaking water in your recipe. Available in 50 gram and 20 gram packages. Store in the refrigerator or freezer for maximum freshness.
