Nick,

A "cepe" is another word for "porcini". It's a wild mushroom, particularly prized in Poland and in Italy.

Fresh ones may be hard to find in stores, but shitakes would be acceptable substitutes.

If the recipe calls for fresh cepes, I would go with fresh shitakes, if you can get them.

If the recipe calls for EITHER fresh or dried cepes, the dried porcini would be perfect.
