A guide to dried mushrooms

While fungi foraging is a popular autumnal activity, many of the special varieties of mushrooms are commercially unavailable in Australia. Fortunately, French and Italian producers have perfected the art of drying mushrooms, and this means we can enjoy them year round by adding texture, flavour and complexity to many dishes.

The Essential Ingredient packages and sells a range of dried mushrooms. With flavour bombs like the savoury shiitake and meaty porcini, the highly prized earthy and fragrant morel and the rich and nutty chanterelle, our mushrooms can be used in a myriad of ways.
