Fresh Foods Cornwall Menu Suggestions...



  • 5 cap mushrooms
  • 6 chestnut mushrooms
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 4 oz pancetta
  • 4 oz buffalo mozzarella
  • 5 tbsps cream
  • 3 slices of wholemeal bread to be used for the breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp oregano 

How to Cook: 

De-stalk the cat mushrooms and moisten the bases with extra virgin olive oil, into which the stuffing will be placed. Into a saucepan, cut up the cat mushrooms stalks and add them to the chopped red peppers, onions, oregano and Pancetta.  

Place the saucepan onto a medium heat and brown off the pancetta. Then leave the mixture to simmer. With the stuffing simmers, blend the wholemeal bread to make breadcrumbs. With the stuffing mixture ready, mix in the cream. Spoon the stuffing mixture into the Cat mushroom bases. Cover the stuffing with breadcrumbs before finally adding the mozzarella on top. They can then be left on the side until 30 minutes before serving.  

Place the stuffed mushrooms into the oven for 30 minutes at 180 degrees.

How to Cook: 

To make the pistou, put the basil, pecorino cheese, pine nuts and a drizzle of olive oil in a blender or food processor. Blitz to combine thoroughly and set aside.  

Fry the pancetta in a large non-stick, frying pan for about 5 minutes until crisp on both sides. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

Return the pan to the heat and cook the scallops in the pancetta fat over a high heat for 2 minutes until golden and tender, turning halfway through the cooking time. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
