Preheat the grill. Wipe the mushrooms clean with a damp cloth. Place in a mixing bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Mix, using your hands, making sure that the mushrooms are completely coated. Place them on a baking tray and roast until they are soft and beginning to brown. Stir once during this time.

Transfer the mushrooms to a mixing bowl and season with the parsley, chives, lime juice, walnut oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper. These grilled mushrooms are delicious served on bruschetta with ricotta cheese.

Wine recommendation:
Chardonnay with a bouquet of butter and toast will enhance the earthy taste of the mushrooms.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
