GIROLLES SÉCHÉES

Girolle, also known as chanterelle or golden chanterelles are shaped like trumpets with frilly caps. They range from gold to yellow-orange in colour; some taste like apricots, while others are more earthy.

A distinct feature of Girolle is that unlike other wild mushrooms, it does not crumble or disintegrate easily and takes longer to cook. Even when tossed, sautéed or stirred, the vegetable continues to hold its shape quite decently. When it comes to cooking elaborate dishes, chefs prefer Girolles over most other varieties of wild mushrooms. The mushrooms are cooked in various ways and used in many recipes from soufflés and sauces to soups, salads and pickles. These are often sautéed in butter for added flavour. When cooked right, the fungus develops a complex, rich flavour that adds taste to almost every preparation. Girolle mushrooms are ideal for drying and retain their aroma, taste and consistency.

Cooking tip: Place your dried Girolle mushrooms into Hot Water and leave to soak for at least 30 minutes to both hydrate them and to create a highly flavourful Mushroom stock. Strain the liquor in a colander lined with kitchen paper. This will remove any grit and serve a fantastic stock for soups and sauces. Place the hydrated Mushrooms into a bowl of cold water and agitate them to remove any further grit. Repeat this process a few times until you are happy they are clean. Dry on a paper towel and use as fresh.

PACKAGING

For the shipping fresh and frozen goods we use high quality mixed recyclable insulated packaging to keep your products perfect through the courier network.

To keep frozen goods at the correct temperature we use a safe alternative to dry ice.  These gel packs freeze to a temperature of -45° and stay frozen for an extended period of time. Completely food safe and fully recyclable/reusable.

FROZEN PRODUCTS

The vast majority of shipments arrive frozen but we cannot guarantee this.  In the event that your order has defrosted it should still be at a very low temperature when you receive it and therefore fine to put in your freezer.  Refreezing is only unsafe if the product has reached 8°c. It is worth mentioning that supermarkets routinely sell defrosted food as "fresh", with the advice that it may be frozen when you get home.

All frozen products arrive in extremely high quality, fully insulated packaging.

FRESH TRUFFLES

All fresh truffles are sent in a foil resealable pack with an absorbent paper.  This is suitable for storing in your fridge.  If storing truffles for more than a few days we recommend wrapping them in paper towel or using a Tuberpac.  Fresh truffles are always best consumed as soon as possible.
