The taste of the morel makes it the most sought after funghi following only the truffle. Essence made from dried morels is rivaled only by the porcini. Morels are often paired with cream or white wine sauces and veal or chicken. They also work well with grilled meats. Dried morels provide much more intense flavor than fresh ones. The addition of the essence and the mushrooms themselves is sure to enhance any dish where they are a component.
