Ingredients

  • Whole fresh cep (porcini) mushrooms 12
  • French shallots 4
  • Garlic 4 cloves
  • Olive oil

    Method

    1. Peel the shallots and cut each into four. Brush the cep mushrooms, leaving them whole.
    2. Coat the bottom of a flameproof casserole dish with olive oil, heat gently, then add the shallots and the unpeeled garlic. Carefully arrange the cep mushrooms on top, cover and cook in a 120°C oven for 3 hours: the cep mushrooms will be reduced in size by half and their flavour doubled in concentration.
