I am not a winter person. I really don’t do well with being cold. Now, as I find myself in a very cold climate, and one that is experiencing considerably more rainfall than usual, I like to make things a little cosy. What could be more delicious than buttery garlic mushrooms on toast?
Mushrooms were a bit exotic in our house growing up. My dad is allergic to them and so we very rarely ate them. So I fell in love with mushrooms as an adult. And now they are always on our shopping list. My funghi journey started with the garden variety button mushroom but you can see me greedily tucking into porcini, shiitake, oyster, enoki and some of the more exotic varieties. For this recipe you can use any type of mushroom you like – a mixture is lovely.
