Dried mushrooms are perhaps a luxury item but because their flavour is so concentrated only a small amount is needed. The fragrant mushrooms mixed with light, silky noodles make an extra-special first course. You could follow with any simple meat or fish dish and green vegetables or salad.


Basic recipe


Soak the dried mushrooms in the warm water for 30 minutes. Remove and chop finely. Strain the water through kitchen towelling and reserve. Wipe the fresh mushrooms with a damp cloth, or, if they are too dirty, rinse quickly in cold water and dry well. Slice lengthways without detaching the stalks.

Heat the butter and oil in a heavy frying pan and sauté the garlic and parsley until soft
