I have to admit I buy plenty of dried wild mushrooms! So often what I find is either too maggott ridden or slug eaten or simply not quite up to scratch in terms of quality so rather than take something from the wild I will be a bit disappointed with, I am happy to buy good quality dried wild mushrooms.
It is worth talking a bit about some of the variation in quality you can find, usually a proper wild mushroom supplier will actually be selling wild mushrooms cultivated in a specialised way in controlled conditions. There is nothing wrong with this and they are usually pretty good although there is a slight difference in strength of flavour.
Some sellers sell wild mushrooms that have been picked in the wild. Do not expect these to be substantially better - they can be of course but there are sometimes a few downsides that you do not get with "cultivated" wild mushrooms.
Wild mushrooms that grow in sandy soils conditions will often get bits of sand and grit caught up and when dried, they get even further embedded. If you get gritted dried mushrooms, you can help alliveiate this by washing several times one they are reconstitued - the down side is you lose a lot of flavour but it is better than having gritty food.
My advice to you is try 2 or 3 supplier and but a small quantity, you will soon establish which ones are relaible with quality and you can be confident what you get is top knotch and will not spoil your meal.
There are suppliers listed on this page at the top - please feel free to vist their sites.
