The porcino is an aromatic and plump mushroom, also called by the ancient Romans Suillus because of its chubby pork like shape; porcino is the Italian translation from Latin. It is a symbiotic and gregarious mushroom, as it grows in crops. This cream has the very intense distinctive sweet earthly scent of the Porcini and is ideal as a spread for a wide range of canapés with other ingredients and also superb with roast meats, vegetables or as a seasoning for meat based sauce pasta or risotto.
