Gourmet Recipes

Porcini Mushroom Gratin
Re-hydrate 20g of Cooks & Co Porcini as per instructions. Peel 1 kg of potatoes and cut them into thin slices.
Brown the Porcini in 15g of butter and 25g of chopped shallots.
Arrange the potatoes and Porcini in alternate layers in a buttered gratin dish.
Pour over 150ml of milk and 150g of crème fraiche, add 3 thinly sliced cloves of garlic, salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste, and cook for about 45 minutes in a oven heated to 220ºC (Gas Mark 7). Serve immediately.

Classic Porcini Sauce
Re-hydrate 20g of Cooks & Co Porcini as per instructions. Drain them, filtering and reserving the liquid, and mince the mushrooms. Heat some oil in a frying pan and sauté 1-2 doves of minced garlic and a sprig of thyme, and when the garlic turns golden (do not let it brown) stir in the mushrooms. Add the liquid mushrooms were soaked in and simmer for about 10 mins. Stir in 1 tblsp of Tomato paste, and salt and pepper to season, and continue simmering until the liquid has reduced and the mushroom bits are tender. Should it dry out while simmering, sprinkle it with dry white wine or broth. This sauce is wonderful over any kind of pasta or Polenta, and is also excellent as an antipasto, spread on Crostini.

Mixed forest Mushrooms in Parsley Sauce
Re-hydrate 20g of Cooks & Co Mixed Forest Mushrooms as per instructions. Heat some oil in a frying pan and brown the mushrooms for a few minutes on a high heat.
When the mushrooms have lost all their water, add 2 tblsps spoons of Olive Oil, 2 crushed garlic cloves and 2 tblsps of chopped parsley. Leave to cook over a low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, and serve as a garnish for a meat dish, for example.

Mixed Mushroom Risotto
Re-hydrate 40g of Cooks & Co Mixed Forest Mushrooms as per instructions. Heat 2 tblsps of Olive Oil in a heavy-based saucepan, add 60g of chopped shallots and 4 crushed garlic cloves, sweat lightly and add the drained mushrooms. Cook for 1 minute and add 250g of Risotto rice. Cook for a further minute and slowly add 600ml of chicken or vegetable stock and 150ml of Dry White Wine, a little at a time on a low heat, so the rice absorbs all the liquid as it is added.
When the rice has absorbed all the liquid and is creamy, mix in 60g of Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve in bowls drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

Wine-Braised Shii-take mushrooms on spinach
Re-hydrate 30g of Cooks & Co Shii-take Mushrooms as per instructions. Trim 750g of spinach of any hard stalks and blanch it in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain, run it under cold water, and dry thoroughly. Oil an oven-proof dish with 15ml of Peanut Oil and cover the bottom with spinach. Peel and thinly slice 2 cloves of garlic and lay this on the spinach. Arrange the mushrooms on top, rounded surfaces uppermost. Pour on 200ml of Rice/Alsace or any other fruity wine, cover and cook at 170ºC, (gas mark 3) in the bottom half of the oven until the mushrooms are tender and succulent (for about 1hr).

Shii-take Mushroom sauce in Marsala
Re-hydrate 30g of Cooks & Co Shii-take mushrooms as per instructions. Sauté 2 tblsps of minced shallots in butter in a large frying pan for 1 min.
