A quick rinse is quite enough

NEVER peel cultivated mushrooms – just give them a quick rinse under cold running water and dry them on kitchen paper, advises the Mushroom Bureau which offers lots of useful tips on making good use them in a new leaflet featuring summer menus..

Called Mushrooms….. Mmm! It also includes eight easy recipes, from which we have chosen to reproduce (above) the one for mushrooms with goats cheese and ham. This is intended for barbecues but can cooked in the oven just as effectively.

For a free copy of the leaflet send an A5-size stamped, addressed envelope to Mushrooms…..Mmm!, Mushroom Bureau, Creephedge House, East Hanningfield, Chelmsford CM3 8BP.

A special Mushroom Cookbook containing almost 100 mushroom recipes is available from the same address. The book costs £3.99 and cheques should be made payable to the Mushroom Bureau.
