Porcini Mushrooms, also known as Boletus edulis (English: penny bun, cep, porcino or porcini) are widely distributed in the Northern Hemisphere across Europe, Asia, and North America. They are not known to occur naturally in the Southern Hemisphere, although it has been introduced to southern Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
The western North American species commonly known as the California king bolete (Boletus edulis var. grandedulis) is a large, darker-coloured variant first formally identified in 2007.
Dried Porcini are graded according to their color, and size. While there is disagreement about the relative flavor between the grades, generally speaking the lighter, larger pieces are preferred by most chefs.
