How to prepare rice with boletus. This rice with boletus was prepared by my mother-in-law this weekend, I was late to the preparation but of course, after trying it, I asked her for the recipe.

I’m just telling you that it was great and that it has a hand for incredible rice, you have the base of the rice from now on and you know, imagination to power.

The Boletus edulis are a delicacy in themselves, they have been caught in the Sierra de Madrid. Although they have told me where, if I tell you, they may not invite me to eat again. These mushrooms only candied or sautéed with a little garlic are already meaningless.
