  • 2 ounces dried porcini mushrooms

  • 2 cups hot water, or as needed

  • 1 stick butter

  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh Italian parsley

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • cup heavy cream

  • cup dry white wine

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place porcini mushrooms in a bowl and cover with hot water. Let soak until plumped up, about 30 minutes.

  2. Pour mushrooms and soaking liquid into a coffee filter or fine mesh sieve set over a bowl. Save soaking liquid for sauce. Rinse rehydrated mushrooms well to remove any grit, then coarsely chop.

  3. Add butter to a large, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. When butter has melted, add parsley and garlic; stir to combine. Stir in chopped mushrooms. Moisten the mixture with a few tablespoons reserved soaking water. Cook, stirring a few times, until the moisture has largely evaporated, about 5 minutes.

  4. Add cream and wine and stir to combine. Cook at barely a simmer until liquid has reduced slightly, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
