Servings: Change Serving


Soak the dried porcini in boiling water for 20 minutes.
Heat the butter in a large pan and sauté the onion, garlic and thyme leaves until translucent. Add the mushrooms, starting with the larger varieties and working towards the smallest so that they all soften at the same time. Season.

Deglaze the pan with sherry and allow the mushrooms to absorb the liquid. Add the stock and capers; simmer briefly but don’t let the pan boil dry.
Top toast with goat’s cheese and drizzle with olive oil. Place back under the hot grill for a few minutes.

To serve

Top goat’s cheese croutons with mushrooms and finish with a few drops of truffle oil, if desired.

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.
