Wild Mushroom Macaroni Cheese (4)

Macaroni Cheese is great comfort food even if it usually blows the diet.  The basic recipe can sometimes  benefit from enhancement. This is my slightly  simplified version of a recipe by Jimmy Garcia aka  ” London’s Pop Up King”. Who would have thought this would be back on restaurant menus!

Oyster mushrooms, or other mushrooms can be used instead of wild mushrooms if preferred.

Pappardelle with Mixed Wild Mushrooms (2)

Over the past few weeks my local greengrocer Pawsons in Bishopston has on several occasions offered wild and/ or exotic mushrooms at a very reasonable price, leading me to purchase them at least once a week while in season. These have included Blewits, Ceps, Chanterelles, Pieds de Moutons and Trompettes de Mort . This is a recipe I keep returning to, from Jamie Olivers first book ” The Naked Chef” published in 1999. I have adapted it here for two people. Simple but delicious.
