Description 

 

2014 WINTER SEASON OVER

 

Sometimes called the "Queen of the Forest," the chanterelle mushroom has also been referred to as "the other mushroom", coming in at second place behind the much beloved and better-known morel.

But even though the morel mushroom is probably the most widely known of the wild mushrooms, it is the Chanterelle mushroom which many of the world's great chefs prize above all others.

The Chanterelle is a distinctively trumpet-shaped wild mushroom with a color that ranges from vibrant yellow to deep orange. Found in the wild throughout the world, Chanterelles have never yet been successfully cultivated.

Wherever they are found, they are prized for their superb flavor and fruity aroma, said to be reminiscent of apricots. Though mild, Chanterelles have a slight peppery edge which holds its own against other ingredients in soups, stews and other main courses.

While tender, the texture of the Chanterelle is firm and not crumbly, standing up well in sauces, stir-frys and sautéed dishes. Their fragrant aroma, fine flavor and pleasing texture make them one of the most versatile of all mushrooms and have earned them a well-deserved place in kitchens around the world.

Pan-fried Trout with Chanterelle Mushrooms
The sweet, mild flavors of both rainbow trout and chanterelle mushrooms are a natural combination. Combining fresh and dried mushrooms is a neat trick that adds a big boost of flavor. Sure, you can buy mushroom powder, but it's not that hard to make it yourself.

If fresh chanterelles are out of season or otherwise unavailable, substitute fresh hedgehogs or other fresh mushrooms.

Rustic Wild Mushroom Tart
Fresh chanterelles are used in this recipe, but you can use any combination of fresh wild mushrooms. If you absolutely cannot find or buy wild mushrooms, by all means, use good quality cultivated mushrooms like shiitake, oyster or cremini mushrooms. Just keep in mind that cultivated mushrooms will not have the intense flavor and earthy aroma that only wild mushrooms possess.

Bacon-Wrapped Tenderloin with Mushroom Risotto
Remember to allow at least 40 to 50 minutes for the risotto to cook. Charlie Trotter suggests partially cooking the risotto earlier in the day, using only three-quarters of the mushroom stock. Refrigerate it in the pan, then just prior to serving, return the pan to the heat. Add the remaining mushroom stock in ¼ cup additions and continue with the recipe as directed. This recipe is from Charlie Trotter's book "Charlie Trotter Cooks at Home" published by the Ten Speed Press.

Wild Mushroom & Veal Terrine with Pepper Coulis
Above all else, remember that this dish must be made a day ahead of time. A well made terrine is a fine experience to have - these flavors have been thoroughly combined with one another until they're barely distinguishable. What emerges is another flavor altogether, a combination of all the ingredients that makes a brand new "taste experience." This "taste experience" is only enhanced by the fact that the flavors have been permitted to sit undisturbed overnight - settling in and blending until you have a truly fine creation.
