Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase these amazing things to cook at home?

    tomorrow morning at the farmers market, check out the mushroom guy. he's had some great ones. use the big, floppy ones for cooking. the small hard ones are perfect for shaving for a salad (arugula, parmigiano, olive oil and lemon juice).

      It's not porcini season yet. I would be surprised/impressed if the mushroom guy has any.

      Risking being flamed to death by the Honorable Members of the Board, I'd humbly suggest the F word ( as in: frozen ):
