Porcini, Boletus edulis

mettä porcini

King of wild mushrooms, tatti or herkkutatti in Finnish, has many English names: boletus, penny bun, cep, porcino or porcini... As beloved royals usually do.

Porcinis grow wild in Finnish forests and are super tasty due to our extreme change in seasons in terms of temperature and light. It grows widely in the Northern Hemisphere across Europe, Asia, and North America, and it does not occur naturally in the Southern Hemisphere. Ours come hand picked from clean Northern Finland. 

Porcini is a popular gourmet mushroom that has a strong nutty flavour. It goes very well with pastas, risottos, in pizza and stews. Porcini is a delicious pair with herbs and works a gourmet seasoning to almost any dish. Try our Porcini Salt with butter for example.

 The name porcini means "piglets" in Italian. The Latin name is Boletus edulis.
