Nothing too exciting this week. Just lots of ham and mushrooms cooked in a lot of cream. Not my type of food but as a mate of mine once remarked: "Food is food, don't complain if you are not paying for it!"
There are tips to remember when preparing your mushrooms for pasta or cream-based soup:
- Always sweat the mushrooms thoroughly so as to bring out the flavours in the fungi.
- Fry some chopped garlic before adding the fungi to the pan. It adds more flavour. Onions are not as compatible with mushrooms.
- Use your herbs. They go together so well that you can imagine yourself in a forest!
- Oh.. and for everyone else who is not allergic to Pepper. Please do add it!
