Q. Why did the mushroom go to the party?
A. Because he's a fungi!
Yes, this is an expensive sauce. An ounce of dried porcini will cost you about six dollars, which translates to about $1.50 per serving, but it is oh, so worth it (and so very, very easy to make). This is a rich, silky sauce that will make you a star at your next special occasion meal. Every now and then it is worth the splurge.

|1 ounce||dried porcini mushrooms|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|4 tsp||unsalted butter|
Place the water in a small saucepan over high heat.
Add the dried porcini.
When the water begins to boil reduce the heat to low.
Let the mushrooms steep in the warming water for 1 hour.
Remove the broth from the heat and pour into a fine mesh strainer over a bowl.
Set the mushrooms aside for another use (Porcini Mashed Potatoes are a great choice).
Gently pour the broth back into the saucepan. Leave the little bit of grit at the bottom of the bowl.
Return the broth to low heat and let reduce to 2/3 cup.
Add the salt and pepper.
Add the butter and whisk until smooth.
