Morel Cream Sauce

Basic Recipe 35

Ingredients

  • 175g Dried morel mushrooms
  • 50ml Port
  • 50ml Madeira
  • 150ml Veal jus
  • 375ml Cream
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Method

Soak the morels in the Port and Madeira for 4 hours. Place in a heavy-based saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a medium heat and reduce the alcohol by three quarters. Add the veal jus and reduce by half. Pour in the cream and continue to cook until the sauce coats the back of a spoon. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. Remove from the heat and allow the sauce to stand for at least 1 hour to allow the dried morels to release all their flavour into the sauce. Pass the morel cream sauce through a fine chinois pressing down on the morels to extract as much flavour and colour as possible.
