French Dried Sliced Ceps, 500g

French Dried Sliced Ceps, 500g

The Cep is a fleshy mushroom, easily distinguished from its relatives by the colour of its stem: the cep's is white, while other varieties have reddish or yellowish stems.


This boletus is highly prized for its refined flavour, the most famous variety of which is the "cèpe de Bordeaux." Its name is due to the gluttony of an English king who made the capital of Aquitaine the main shipping port for these valuable mushrooms. It was only late in the 19th century that Parisians rediscovered with great pleasure the cep, thanks to Alcide Bonton, the great chef of the Café Anglais, the poshest hang-out for the aristocracy since the time of Napoleon III. Its favoured clientele were soon raving about the woodland recipes, and the consumption of this wild mushroom came back into vogue.

Our dried Ceps are A graded (premium quality).
