recipe

A twist on mushroom-barley soup, this warming broth, nourished with fresh hens of the woods, royal trumpets, oysters, and chanterelles, counts as a meal. The farro is tender but with a satisfying chew, a handful of dried porcini offers additional depth of flavor, and dill and vinegar give each spoonful a real pop.

recipe

This hearty soup is made with dried borowik mushrooms -- a pungent variety from Poland -- dried shiitakes, and fresh button mushrooms. Since borowik mushrooms can sometimes be difficult to find, you may substitute dried cepes, also known as porcini mushrooms. Always store dried mushrooms in an airtight container to preserve their flavor.

recipe

The flavors of dried and fresh mushrooms carry through in this proper Italian risotto, made from plump Arborio rice, which absorbs plenty of mushroom stock until it's meltingly tender on the outside but still sturdy within.
