National Mushroom Month brings to the forefront a misunderstood “vegetable“…
It is amazing how delicious these fungi can be, especially when combined with butter, garlic & cream.
The complexity of these flavors is intense, and the taste is unforgettable.
Even though they are mostly water in composition, they contain more vitamin B & protein than many other plants.
Mushrooms add earthiness and elegance to any dish, and calories are minimal, but don’t be fooled, mushrooms readily absorb butter, cream and oil – the things we love to taste.
Wild mushrooms have more flavor than cultivated varieties.
To me, nothing is more delicious than a variety of foraged mushrooms like chanterelles, black trumpets, crimini, brown truffles, lobster mushrooms or morelles.
Fried in butter, with garlic and heavy cream and served on toast, preferably cooked outdoors on an open fire. These flavors are very rustic & so decadent.
