I would probably add some gound up olives. But then again, I would probably add olives to corn flakes.

IC is dead on as usual. My addition would be to add a bit of truffle oil to the mixture and serve together with another appetizer made from freshly steamed artichoke hearts with thinly sliced medium rare roast beef on little squares bread. Again, drizzle the bread squares with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and toast to golden brown. Rubbed with fresh garlic and top with the artichoke heart aned beef. Pairing these together with the mushroom appetizers would allow guests to sample the artichoke heart appetizers. Artichokes have the unique ability to amplify other flavors that you eat, especially the sweet compounds that are often hidden in foods.
