Re: Tonight's dinner?

No cooking tonight, all raw (except the dessert, done earlier in the day):

Porcini salad.

Carne all'Albese.

Chocolate cake in the shape of "Hello Kitty"'s head.

No, bought them in Ponte Tresa, EUR 15/kg (if we bought 2kg, as we did, EUR 18/kg for one)

Anyway, slice the caps thinly, add rocket and shave parmigiana, olive oil and lemon.

Stems can be used otherwise.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

OK will try- as soon as I find some- as I never buy them on markets, etc

Never knew they could be eaten raw! My favourite, morels (spugnole) are in fact very poisonous raw!

Really?

They exist around here, but we've never found them.

Usual stuff we find is "mazza di tamburo", coprinus (which don't keep, but freeze great), and the occasional porcini.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Ahhh les morilles- in Spring though. I learnt to find them with a pro, my dad. Going mushroom picking in ouf favourite spots (coins) always brings me close to him (he died aged 96 4 years ago).

Mazza di ??? What on earth are they.

Coprinus are good if very young and fresh, but only the shaggy ones (with the brown scales)- the other ink caps can be poisonous (not deadly) if eaten with alcohol, for some people. I much prefer the other species which is a bit similar, the Parasol Mushroom- much tastier. We find chaterelles here, blewitts, millers, pied de mouton, ecailleux (for pickling to eat with raclette), and so many more. And around May time, a huge circle of St Georges mousserons - kilos and kilos of them, hurrah.

Edit : ahaha just looked, so mazza di tamburro are Parasol mushrooms I used to find loads in the UK too, together with blewitts and blue legs. In the countryside there, mushroom picking, was just me and a couple of old Polish men- as UK people in general know absolutely nothing about wild mushrooms!

A couple years ago, my wife was getting several kg of coprinus/day, which is how I discovered that they freeze well (as there is no other way to keep them, as they turn to black ink). Looking forward to getting some later in October.

Parasols are great breaded and fried.

The other she knows where to find are "lingue di bue", which grow on oak and chestnut trees and stumps.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Nodini di vitello alla Milanese, cuore di bue tomatoes with smoked bufalo mozzarella, leftover pasta, and salad.

Tomorrow, polenta with deer ossi bucchi and porcini (hard not to buy them at EUR 15/kg).

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Simon Hopkinson's baked pappardelle with pancetta and porcini.

Never tried it before but am sure it'll turn out delish!

Meats?

Never liked my mother's, I generally do a bourguignonne type, my wife an Italian one, both with beef.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

My mother's were always too watery for my taste, I like them with a thick broth/gravy.

Her liver also sucked (overcooked, we like it rare).

Re: Tonight's dinner?

The Hairy Biker's chilli con carne.

Another great miserable weather dish. Made it last night so it'll taste even better today!

https://www.hairybikers.com/recipes/...con-carne/1626

It'll be served with basmati rice, avocado salsa and a few nachos.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Homemade spätzle, red cabbage and a meat dish to go with it. Hope it is edible, required more than my standard amount of effort . Kids ate it up like crazy recently when my neighbor made it...
