The highly appreciated Boletus edulis can frequently be found in deciduous woodlands. It has a solid, fleshy cap with a thick, robust, solid stalk. This wild mushroom is one of the most highly appreciated for its flavour and texture.
In Catalonia they are known as ceps and the Basques call them ondo zuri. Elsewhere in Europe they have other names, such as funghi porcini in Italy and steinpilz in Germany.
Their gentle flavour makes these wild mushrooms a perfect ingredient in many dishes, even served raw. They are excellent in risottos, scrambled egg, pasta dishes, croquettes, for seasoning sauces and as a garnish.
