Dried Mushrooms: King boletes

40 g


Receive your order before June 27


King boletes are big mushrooms with fawn-coloured caps which often grow near spruce trees. They grow a first time in late June and again in September. They are the most widely sold wild mushroom in the world after chanterelles, probably because their rich nutty and woodsy taste make them irresistible!

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.
