Porcini Mushroom Risotto
While the popularity of porcini mushrooms is driven by Italian dishes, the Rocky Mountain region’s elevation affords visitors and residents the ability to forage for wild mushrooms along the wooded mountain sides and forests covering the region.
Porcini specifically grow around pine trees in damp environments, something that the Rockies has in abundance. The smooth, nutty-flavor porcinis bring to dishes makes them highly lauded by both local chefs in the Rockies, as well as foodies around the globe.
Whip up this decadent risotto for your next dinner and you’ll see why people spend days hunting for porcinis and other wild strains of mushroom in the Rocky Mountains.
