Don't know about meteorological facts, but from my point of view June was exceptionally cold, July exceptionally hot and August exceptionally rainy in Finland.

Neither do I know much about mycology, but this weather combination must have offered the most ideal growing conditions for ceps and other boletus mushrooms. They're big, they're everywhere. This September is exceptionally good for hunting for ceps. Ceptember.

My porcini I like creamed or in risotto or in pasta or as a soup but mostly I love them as below:
Thinly sliced and in butter crispy fried on a piece of toasted rye bread. Salt and pepper and that's about it.
