“...the beauty of Tanner's book is that he reminds you that flavorful, delicious foods don't always require a multitude of ingredients. In fact, some of the best ones only require a handful.” — Epicurious
From the Publisher
Juicy baked mushrooms, creamy goat cheese, and pungent pesto, finished off with crisp puff pastry make this recipe a real winner!
4 large Portobello mushrooms
olive oil, for brushing
crushed sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
5 1/2oz goat cheese
4 teaspoons pesto
1 free-range egg yolk, beaten
13oz package ready-rolled puff pastry
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wipe the mushrooms with paper towels, remove the stems, and discard. Oil the caps of the mushrooms and place on a baking sheet, gill-side up. Season with crushed sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Crumble the goat cheese into a small bowl and sprinkle some over each mushroom. Spoon 1 teaspoon of pesto on top of the goat cheese.
Unroll the pastry on to a lightly floured surface and lightly roll out to form a 12-inch square. Cut the square into four squares measuring 6in.
Brush the edges of the pastry squares with beaten egg and place one square of pastry, egg-side down, over each mushroom. Press the pastry around and under the mushroom caps to seal.
Score the top of the pastry in a criss-cross pattern. Brush with beaten egg and bake for 16 to 18 minutes until the pastry is golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to stand for 2 minutes before serving.
TIP You could fill these pastries with lots of different combinations of flavors. Just make sure the filling isn't too "wet" or the pastry will become soggy.

These could be recipes that you would be willing to serve some pretty discerning company. Some not to miss are; Mom's roasted red peppers and anchovies, summer bread pudding, and Mom's toad in the hole is one of the better varieties of that recipe -fun to serve and eat.
There are pictures for some recipes, although more would have been welcome, especially for dishes such as terrine. Included are; little dishes, main, vegetable, desserts, breads and sauces.
It's an interesting addition for those who like to collect cookbooks.
