So I got myself a new job and I am VERY relieved. As in giddy, happy, elated kind of relieved. It’s been 5 months and some of it has been tough. So I felt I needed a wee bit of a pat in the back and so I thought I’d make something that I’ve been missing a lot this season: mushrooms. I don’t know why really, it’s not like you can’t buy them everywhere after all…They’re even in season so I’ve no excuse. Anyway, I went off to Fallon & Byrne because not only did I want mushrooms but I wanted fancy mushrooms. And bought a mixture of their mushrooms.
This dish is really basic and can be done with any mushrooms.
First don’t wash your mushrooms. If they have a bit of dirt on them just brush them. Hack them up roughly and throw them on melted butter on a medium heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and simmer for 10 min. After 10 min, remove the lid and grate 2 cloves of garlic and add a handful of chopped up parsley and a swig of white wine. Cover for another 10 min.
Add a generous spoonful of creme fraiche and melt it through. Serve and devour!
