Mashed Potatoes with Morel Gravy and Roasted Mushrooms, and a Giveaway for The Conscious Cook!
Earlier this summer I meandered over to my favorite farmers market. Amongst heirloom cherry tomatoes, long-stemmed artichokes, peaches, and berries, I found a local mushroom seller. Shiitakes, morels, black trumpet, so many, and all beautiful local mushrooms. I brought home three types, and pondered what to do with these gorgeous things. In the end, I roasted lion's mane and lobster mushrooms, and served it alongside morel gravy over mashed yukon gold potatoes. I wish I had a recipe for you, but I am sure you could make one up.
Or, alternatively, you could reach for your Tal Ronnen cookbook, and look up some of his great mushroom recipes. Today's giveaway is brought to you by the generous folks over at William Morrow, an imprint of Harper Collins Publishers. I offer to you a copy of Tal Ronnen's wonderful cookbook, The Conscious Cook!
I have this cookbook, and I really love it. Everything I've made has been outstanding. It is beautifully designed with gorgeous photos. I am a particular fan of the celeriac soup with Granny Smith apples and chive oil. The cashew cream will become part of your regular repertoire, and it's easy easy.
To enter, please leave a comment below. Tell me about a gourmet meal you've made or eaten recently, or tell me about what you'd like Tal Ronnen to make for you if you had the chance, or anything you want. This giveaway is open to everybody, everywhere, from Wisconsin to Bavaria to Singapore, and all points in between! The winner will be chosen by a random number generator and posted tomorrow below tomorrow's giveaway. If you have won a bigger giveaway from this blog, please consider being kind and not entering further bigger giveaways--I'd love as many people to win something as possible!
