Even cultivated mushrooms can be given flavour and substance by marinating them. That being said, cultivated button mushrooms really have no discernible flavour unless - with eyes closed and great concentration - you may discern the faintest whiff of damp cellars. This recipe uses the large, flat-cap field mushrooms which are grilled to remove excess water before being marinated. This enhances the flavour and gives them a more substantial taste.
