Recipe report: Bill's chantarelles braised in cream

Now, mind you, that's not what he called it (I think there was something about sex in the name he used), but it would be the right name for the dish.

I decided to do this recipe because it dawned on me that this method would nail the mushroom dish I mentioned in another thread having had in Switzerland 20 years ago. It was my very first experience with chantarelles ever, and I have longed for that taste ever since. So I followed his instructions exactly, though I used just a scant teaspoon of masala curry seasoning as well. To serve, I folded the mixture inside buckwheat crepes that I'd just made and paired them with a a vegetable side dish of brussels sprouts roasted with lardons of bacon and whole cloves of garlic. A salad of fresh escarole, bibb lettuce and fresh mint in dijon vinaigrette started the meal, and a bottle of Copain pinot noir was our wine.

It was a perfect dinner straight out of a Paris bistro. Excellent. Thanks, Bill!

What a fantastic-sounding dinner. Thanks, Jenise!
