Thanks Kayelle. The idea for the puff started out as my entree. It was going to be a 'Bello-Wellington, a take off on Beef Wellington, with a Duxelle and chicken liver pate under the cap. But I couldn't come up with and appetizer idea to go with that, so I ditched that idea and decided to go with an all vegetarian meal. '

Oh, there is one puff left and I am going to have that with my dinner tonight. I'll let you all know how it reheats.

Excellent, Dave! And how clever of you to master the mushroom drink dilemma by incorporating the mushroom juice into a tomato juice based drink...and Bloody Maria is a good name for it. Love the fresh basil leaf garnish too. The whole meal looks really delicious. Two yums up for you too.

Dave, you, Kathleen and the Princess have sure raised the bar pretty high. And GW, you may protest, but I think I know you well enough to not be surprised when you come of with something great. I am just having a lot of fun with this and hopefully everyone will feel that passion. It isn't a competition to me - it is sharing a love of food with good friends!

Well, I was finally able to catch up with my supplier for that secret ingredient so I can finish everything off tomorrow and post. Only downer is DH has been called into work (no, that is good news, don't get me wrong) and I was going to do the appetizer as our lunch when Dad, the mushroom hater isn't here. I will have to do it as an appie when DH gets home in the afternoon.

I doubt you will be able to buy Calvatia Gigantia the Giant Puffball, they grow near me along with a few other types of fungi, if you google it you will see what it looks like and some recipes.
This maybe teaching granma to suck eggs but if you go out fungi picking take a chart of the edible and poisinous types and if you cant match it dont eat it.
I slice a steak sized piece of puffball and fry it in bacon fat then top it with fried eggs for brekkie, it is also fab as chicken fried steak.
