This is an excellent selection of dried porcini mushrooms.
We select and package the best mushroom slices with cream white and yellow cap and stem sections. They are gently picked at source by our gatherers and controlled by our expert mycologists. Porcini mushrooms are cleaned, sliced, dried and then packaged by hand. We suggest to use them, seasoned as you prefer, to enrich the flavor of risotto and pasta dishes.
The product must be rehydrated and cooked before eating. To preserve them the best, store in a cool, dry place and avoid moisture and direct sunlight. Once the package is open, if you don’t use all the products, place the mushrooms in a tightly closed container and keep them in the freezer for longer periods. The product will maintain its best qualities if consumed before the date indicated on the package.
Let’s discover how to cook them and how to use in the different recipes.
Talking about the origins of Scherini Funghi means retracing a family history that goes back three generations, each of which has had close ties to the Valtellina area, with a passion for a business that began over forty years ago. In fact, it was 1972 when Franco Scherini and his wife Pierina established a small frozen food company in Albosaggia, just outside of Sondrio.
They were later succeeded by their daughter, Cristina, and her husband, Francesco, whose son, Alessandro (the founders’ grandson), now represents the company’s third generation. In the meantime the business has continued to grow, to the point that it now employs 20 workers, and has had to repeatedly expand its production areas, while at the same time remaining faithful to its historic headquarters.
