THE PORCINI MUSHROOM
Often hailed as the king of mushrooms, the porcini mushroom is the best known woodland mushroom and the most commonly consumed. In fact, it is for this reason that the founder of the Maison Borde, Alexandre Borde, named his first brand "Roi des Montagnes" or "King of the Mountains" in 1925!
They can be found all over Europe and even on the other side of the world. To grow, the porcini mushroom needs wooded areas (coniferous or deciduous), as well as a certain amount of moisture in the soil. Its fame comes from the fact that this mushroom offers up certain gastronomic qualities that are very easy to highlight in cooking and some incomparable nutritional benefits, making it an essential food.
