you got it!

haha...you got it! Yes, Porcini! Last time i mixed porcini and other types mushroom that bought in costco. Because I can only bring porcini from Italy one time per year, and face the risk of taking out by USA custom.:-) So i am pretty stingy, usually will mix with other mushroom.:-) Next time, you will try my Porcini Risotto.
