two of my favourite things to make with mushrooms in the summertime are shish kebabs with beer soaked (overnight is best) white button shrooms on the skewer, and grilled portabellas filled with melted gorgonzola and minced garlic.

Chanterelles (pfifferling) are great as long as you do not overcook them.

I love raw mushrooms and so does my daughter, when I make a mushroom dish I buy 2 punnets. One to eat for us and one to cook with, otherwise we end up with hardly any left..lol! Mushroom pate is good too :)

My favorite "cheffy" tip for mushrooms: When the recipe calls for "wild" mushrooms and all you can find is the white button kind (or even -- sadly -- canned ones) while you are sauteeing them, (be sure to use lots of real butter) squirt a little lemon juice on them to freshen up their flavor. Then just before they're finished, toss in a handful of finely chopped flat leaf parsley. Amazing the transformation. As I said, it even works with canned mushies. Rinse them well (to help remove the "can" taste) and dry well. Then slice and proceed as for fresh.
Thank you for this tip ChefJune, I have a jar of straw mushrooms and a jar of oyster mushrooms...they both taste like the brine they are packed in. I will try your fix!

It also helps after rinsing and drying them to dry fry them in a non-stick skillet for a few minutes before add the butter and seasonings. It helps get out some of the excess moisture and improves the texture a little. @ChefJune, I haven't tried using the lemon and parsley, it sounds like something I should try. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks, I didn't like the flavor (chemical, astringent), but have been too stingy to just toss them out.

did you know truffles are considered to be an aphrodisiac, just like oysters and artichokes? what kind of a specialty dish would you create, given a $500 truffle (the size of a baby pillow)? this was the challenge on masterchef tonight. timothy, i'll have a truffle dream to report on for your "what did you dream last night" thread tomorrow. it should make a nice companion piece for your sushi dream....:)

$500 worth of truffle...that's more people than I want on my aphrodisiac date night...but for Shrek and I, slightly burned Truffle Tapioca pudding.

I had some White Truffle Balsamic vinegar today...I wanted to reduce it to syrup and pour on French Vanilla ice cream.
