A rich pilaf from Thomasina Miers.
A recipe from Neil Cooper of The Greyhound on the Test Hotel in Hampshire
This makes a lovely vegetarian supper dish on its own but can also be served to accompany roat meat, chicken or fish. It’s from ” A Taste of Home” by Angela Hartnett.
Another recipe from Alice’s Cook Book. If you dont have porcini mushrooms you can use other mushrooms.
Its nearly the season for picking funghi again so here is a new recipe for pasta with wild mushrooms from Rachel Roddy.
Seasonal Mushrooms with garlic. You can use wild mushrooms or a mixture of wild and field mushrooms depending on availability and price.
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.
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.
