I spent my childhood in the north of Russia, in the cold snowy taiga, among the deer, Eskimos, oil producers and romantic lovers of harsh life. But I went to school in the west of Ukraine, with mild European climate.

But in both this regions there are lots of porcini – in the forest of the north of Russia, and in the forests of the Carpathian Mountains.

I love porcini mushrooms diches and can eat them very often, so when Jorge Juan cooked his signature dish, which reall like the King of Spain, I could not resist the temptation…

Only Spanish Chefs know how to cook porcini mushrooms to please the King. Porcini theme is very developed in the country. Special mushroom trays are at all the Spanish markets, and they work all year round. Spanish cuisine has a lot of different mushroom dishes. Porcni mushrooms in Spain are considered the same delicacy as truffles.
