source for high-quality dried mushrooms?
i'm extremely unhappy with the ones i've purchased @ surfas.
the 'forestier' blend was loaded with grit & woody stems, and the whole shiitakes were pretty much inedible.
anyone know where i can get some good dried gourmet mushrooms [i.e. porcini, chanterelle, etc.] that aren't appallingly expensive?
i'd try costo but i heard they discontiued their porcini, and i don't really need shiitakes. and i thought about picking up the ones i've seen @ trader joe's, but the packages are teeny.
