It’s been nice to have a little time to experiment with a couple of new recipes now that the picking season is over. We were inspired by a lady we met last weekend who told us about one of her favourite wild mushroom recipes given to her by a French friend. This simple recipe contained chestnuts, always such a nice ingredient to use around Christmas, and we’re very grateful to her for telling us because the combination of wild ceps with chestnuts is truly a match made in heaven!
First up is Ceps with chestnuts and thyme. This is such a delicious dish that we ate it as it was straight out of the pan! It would make a fantastic addition as a side dish to the Christmas dinner or served as a quick and easy lunch with a good crusty bread.
Alternatively if you want a spectacular soup for a special dinner party we can highly recommend our Porcini & Chestnut soup. Rich, creamy and warming, with a touch of brandy, this soup definitely has the wow factor.
Full instructions to make both dishes can be found on our wild mushroom recipes page. Bon appetit!
