Alert! Perfect Fresh Porcini!

It is fresh porcini season, and excellent porcini dishes are showing up all over town.

César on Piedmont is serving up some wonderful roasted fresh porcini with white truffle butter; it’s amazing says JasmineG. “Get ’em while they last,” urges Robert Lauriston. Also great there: pimentos de padron, sand dabs, and a beautiful apricot custard.

At Eccolo, ML8000 found an exciting dish of fresh porcini and veal chops al cartaccio (in a parchment bag). “The chop was good but the mushrooms were outstanding.”
