The Cooking In Sanity Project: Mushrooms Sauteed in Butter, Mushroom Duxelles

Hi Everyone!

Today I did something a little crazy.  I cooked mushrooms.  As some of you may know, I am not a big fan of mushrooms in any shape or form.  So I decided to go ahead and push my limits by cooking Julia’s recipe for sautéed mushrooms.  Let’s see how this goes…

I’m just gonna come out and say it: this recipe is weird.  I’ve never heard of squeezing mushrooms to get rid of the moisture (in fact, I didn’t even know mushrooms had juice in them), and the entire process was very long and gross.  The mushrooms themselves didn’t taste half bad, surprisingly, but for the amount of work that it takes to prep the mushrooms, I just don’t think it’s worth it.  I am pretty proud of myself for cooking AND eating mushrooms, though!

The full recipe can be found in Mastering the Art of French Cooking (2 Volume Set). I think every good cook deserves to have a copy of Julia Child’s masterpiece in their kitchen.

Thanks for watching and I’ll see you next time!
