Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the shallots and garlic, and gently sauté for a couple of mins. Remove the porcini mushrooms from the soaking liquid and squeeze out any excess. Roughly chop and add to the pan along with the chestnut mushrooms and thyme. Cook for about 5 mins. If the mixture seems dry, add a little mushroom soaking liquid.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the mascarpone and Parmesan. Season and leave to cool. Chill until ready to use.
  3. Divide between 10 vol-au-vent cases and serve scattered with Parmesan shavings and a few thyme leaves.

Very easy to assemble but way too cheesy for my tastes. My sous chef [my husband :)] concurred and in fact we did not use the extra shavings we had put aside for the plating. That said, I'd make this again, adding the parmesan gradually as I go along according to taste.

These were a big hit at my last party. I almost wish I'd doubled the recipe since they disappeared so quickly. I will definitely make these again.
