If you're looking for a similar aroma and flavor of porcini mushrooms , buy these as the flavor can't be beaten for the price. In the USA, most stores do not carry porcini mushrooms and if they do their origin is from China so I'm not sure exactly which variety I am getting. I have not had any issues with the quality. They're fairly clean and full of a distinct aroma. If using the mushroom water I did notice that these mushrooms create a darker and Cloudier are broth that will leave speckles on the pasta. I it is not great as I have strained through a filter and left overnight but there is a characteristic with this compared to the once I've purchased in the supermarket. When making my sauce, side by side with the supermarket ones, the gravy from the supermarket was more of a sand color and more translucent while as the Chilean variety as more of a coffee with cream color and some more noticeable speckles that will stick to the pasta. I would not say this is a bad thing but I had a chef say that it looked muddier. At this price I am fine with that and think that it adds a little more interest the blank canvas of the light pasta. I'm a little disappointing it no longer comes in a plastic container which I used to put in the freezer. The bag is fine I guess. Maybe it's better but I just cannot expect it to come in bag.Mark, Hamburg, NJ

I grew up with and love dried porcini mushrooms. I was born in Parma, Italy where some of the best tasting are picked and grown. As as child, I did this very thing until I moved out of my parents house after I got married, so, I would say, I am very familiar with the Italian porcini. As stated in the description, these are from Chile and are different variety of porcini. When comparing them to the ones from Italy, these are not quite as flavorful nor do they have quite the same aroma. I have to use more in my dishes for the same amount of 'kick'. Another issue is that they do not have quite the same taste. The Italian porcini are more "buttery" in flavor. Now, having said all that, I still find them very good in their own right. I use them in conjunction with the Italian porcini and I find them complimentary.Alexander, Ventnor City, NJ
