Trompettes are dark, horn-shaped mushrooms with furled edges and a long, curved stem. They have delicate, parmesan and blue cheese aromas with intense, mushroom flavours. Trompette mushrooms are nicknamed ‘poor man’s truffle’ due to their dark colour and strong earthy flavours, which also allows them to mimic truffles when cut into slivers.

Most often though, dried trompette mushrooms are rehydrated in warm water, and are then pulled into long, thin strands and used as a delicate garnish for scallops, white fish or beef. The trompettes are also delicious when stirred into risotto, or even blended into a trompette tapenade and slavered on crusty bread.
