Dried porcini mushroom (Boletus edulis and related group) extra
The Brise or special porcini mushrooms, are selected from the best fresh porcini mushrooms, are sliced and then dried following ancient and very modern methods to preserve their flavor and aroma, with a less important dimension. The inside of the mushroom is light (from cream to hazel) and the presence of crumbs is due to manipulation. The special category safeguards aesthetics, but it is not the focus of your plate.
These fragrant and precious forest fruits are still processed manually in Trentino. Indicative period: from mid-July to the end of September.
Some tips: to better use them, heat a little water and bring it to a boil, turn off the heat and immerse the mushrooms for a few minutes. Gently wash the mushrooms and use the soaking water to flavor risottos, meats and other delicacies. If you use soaking water, decant the residue, do not mix or shake the water, use only the superficial part. The presence of the residue is evidence of a craftsmanship, respectful of the naturalness of the product.
