Serves 10 as a small starter or 4 for a main course.

½ oz dried porcini
1 qt. water
1 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. salt
1 tbsp. soy sauce
¼ lb. unsalted butter
1 cup long grain rice
½ oz. dried onion
Grated parmesan cheese

In uncovered saucepan, bring water, dried mushrooms, sugar, salt and soy sauce to boil. Strain out the liquid and reserve. Chop the mushrooms finely.

In a medium sauté pan melt the butter and add the dried onion and rice. Stir for 1 minute then add the reserved mushroom liquid. Cook uncovered and stir gently until water is absorbed and evaporated, about 15-20 minutes.

Portion rice, drizzle lightly with truffle oil and Parmesan cheese and serve.

Chanterelle Mushroom Ragout
From Chef Stephanie Kimmel of Marché in Eugene, Ore.

This is a simple, versatile sauce that works equally well on pasta or beautiful piece of wild salmon. Truly an expression of terroir, it captures the delicious essence and texture of fresh chanterelles.
