... you might find some mushrooms!! I did and I wasn't even looking for them!!! I'd long since resigned myself to the fact that all the secret mushrooms spots here were to remain eternally secret to me, seventeen years of living in this valley and never found one. Until today that is...
... two 'cepes' and five 'chanrelles'!!
Combined with what the garden had to offer we had ourselves quite a feast this evening - Croute Savoyard and salad.
There's no particular recipe for a Croute - every family has their own depending on what's in the pantry. It's one of those fantastically frugal dishes, originally made with stale bits and bobs - dry bread dipped in white wine to soften it up, the 'Croute' (the hard rind of a piece of cheese), the end bits of ham etc all covered in cream and baked in the oven. For mine I added my 'two cepes and five chantrelles', some left over potatoes, an egg and a sliced tomato.
My own secret mushroom spot, I almost feel like a local!!!
