Recipe found on the web ! http://www.ptitchef.com/

Ingredients for 4 people :

At the Salon Rest’Hôte 2008 in Québec, I had the opportunity to find some nice products including dried mushrooms from Gaspésie Sauvage.
These mushrooms are gathered in the forest, 100% wild and they are all come from Canada.
The company is ethical and fair, focusing on sustainability and quality products.
Impossible to resist, so in my basket I put boletes, Hedgehogs and morels (I love mushrooms…)
For my recipe, I used porcinis – complemented by a mushroom and truffle cream sauce from Casina Rossa – a little garlic, a shallot, parsley and that’s it ! It was delicious and quick to prepare and also unlike my other recipes!
