I love things that are common to all places on earth – we all see the same moon at night and we all turn our faces to the same sun. Bread, meat, potatoes, spices have migrated around the world and every culture and civilization over time has felt ownership of them in a unique and particular way. Bread’s basic ingredients change very little, but crisp baguette is very different from wafer-thin Turkish flatbread. They have so much in common yet both speak completely of place. So too the ubiquitous mushroom. You’ll find a form of mushroom and cream sauce https://bit.ly/1uwHD69, mushroom pies https://bit.ly/1xcGlxS and mushroom soup https://bit.ly/1wM8OXr everywhere you go. They’re such comfort food – definitely going to make all three this week!
