King Bolete, also Porcini
Fresh Porcini mushrooms are a famous, and delicious, addition in Italian cuisine.
These have a concentrated flavor and heady mushroom aroma that is great in risotto, soups and sauces. Their strong nutty flavor make them an incredibly popular gourmet mushroom.
Like so many other good edible mushrooms, Porcini are mycorrhizal. This means that the underground vegetative growth of the mushroom, called the mycelia, enters into a symbiotic relationship with the roots of plants.
