Cover the dried mushrooms with 3 cups hot water and set aside.


Heat the oil in a saucepan over high heat. Add the onion, carrot, garlic, and fresh mushrooms and their trimmings. Saute, stirring occasionally, until well browned, about 10 minutes.


Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the tomato paste, marjoram, and wine, and sprinkle on the flour. Once the wine has reduced to a syrupy consistency, after about 3 minutes, add the porcini, their soaking water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a little pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes, then strain. The stock can be frozen.
