They may seem a little expensive but these Italian dried mushrooms have a wonderfully intense concentrated flavour, and you'll find very little goes a long way.
They are always soaked first in a little boiling water, which itself becomes infused with the flavour so this can be either used in the recipe or kept aside for stock.
Because we can rarely get hold of wild mushrooms, porcini are a must for every storecupboard.
