A superb dehydrated mushroom
This is one of the great wild mushrooms and it is always a pleasant surprise to find a few. Near the door to Gourmet Sauvage’s kichen, there is a big white spruce under which we find, year after year, a few dozen king boletes. These little gems are consumed that very day.
The mushrooms we offer are handpicked in the forest and carefully dried. The result is a high quality product.
Using King Boletes
The rich nutty taste of king bolete is great in risotto and accompanies very well meats with a stronger taste like game meats.
Rehydrate your mushrooms in the liquid of your choice (water, wine, stock, milk) until they are swollen and pliable (about 10 minutes) and use them in your favorite recipe. Keep any excess liquid for other recipes. If your recipe already has liquid, toss the mushrooms in as they are; they will rehydrate during the cooking. Use them as is, chopped in chunks or ground into a powder in your blender.
