Sinclair’s presentation will be on mushrooms. Sinclair has always been passionate about local food, he is now very regularly walking the forest to discover everything about mushrooms. He has a large collection of books on mushrooms, works with our chefs to discover the best recipes using mushrooms. We have discussions at home as I believe that mushrooms don’t need very much, just sauteed in a little bit of butter ( I am French butter makes things better!), not too many herbs, a tiny bit of garlic, and finished with a bit of cream at the end, is how I like to eat them, just mushrooms….! My favorite is cauliflower mushroom. At home, on our very steep bank , on the north side,I have placed a few alder logs to hold the bank and I hope to inoculate the logs and be able to harvest some oyster mushrooms!Do you think I want to impress my husband?
Would you like to send us your best mushroom recipe?
