This pate is one of the best dips I've ever had. I sauteed the mushroom ingredients on low, because when cooking with pure butter it burns easily, so I wanted to be careful. I added a splash of white wine, and I slowly cooked the mushrooms for about 45 mins. I also didn't feel like roasting the garlic (it was too hot out), so I added minced garlic to the mushrooms. Next time I'll try it with roast garlic, but it was still fantastic. VERY gourmet, and perfect for a classy event, or wine tasting.
crazy good! and someday i want to make it exactly as written. however... i had some shrooms in the fridge that i needed to use up and this recipe caught my eye -- must have been the word "exotic." mine were not but thought i could sub anyway. oh wait. walnuts? didn't have any of those either. no shallots. i used regular onions white and baby bella mushrooms elephant garlic all the fresh herbs listed plus sage. for the walnuts -- and this is REALLY nuts! -- i used old-fashioned peanut butter! i made just a little in case it was inedible but here i sit with my "woven wheat crackers" (didn't have french bread!) chowing down like crazy! thanks for the "exotic" inspiration!!
I added dry white wine and a lil extra butter when I cooked the mushrooms down. Then I added a couple tablespoons of finely grated parmesan when I mixed everything together. Delicious! This is definitely something I plan on making again.
Ok I did not care for this recipe and I LOVE all of the ingrediants. The mushroom mixture was great until I added the walnuts. Even thou I thought that it was not good I still brought it to the party hoping that it was just my taste buds. No one had more than one bite. I can't even figure out how to fix it. I really want to give it one star but that would give it a very low star rating and deter other people from trying it out on there own. Maybe it was me...but I don't think so. Look at my other reviews and see that I am usually a very possitve reviewer. Thanks for the recipe.
An unusual and warm nutty pate. I added a dash of balsamic vinegar and worcestorshire sauce when the mushrooms were sauteed. I used only button as it had no others in stock but it still came out great. Used fresh sage too. Also put in a few frops of lemon juice as i was purreing it in the food processor.
This was just okay. It tasted very mushroomy which I like but others said it tasted "dirty" to them. It does have a very earthy flavor. The exotic mushrooms aren't cheap and this took some time to put together. Just wasn't good enough to warrant the expense and effort.
Amazing! I was blown away and no one could stop eating it. I often collect wild mushrooms (not for beginners) and am always looking for creative ways to prepare them. This recipe has the potential for endless variations of different nuts and mushrooms all delicious! A word about mushrooms: 1-wipe clean with a paper towel to remove any debris. 2-discard the stem it is "tougher" than the cap and may produce a gritty texture in the finished product. 3-initially cook on med-high heat with butter and oil (adding oil increases the smoke point and keeps the butter from burning) to caramelize the mushrooms (just like caramelized onions they taste better). Then lower the heat and add non-salted flavored liquid (wine sherry etc) and water as necessary to tenderize and finish cooking. I would also like to clarify the amount of walnuts I believe it is 1 cup of whole walnuts not chopped or diced so adjust accordingly and use a smaller amount of chopped or diced. Take care not to burn the walnuts!
I thought this was excellent. The roasted garlic is great - really brings out the woody mushroom flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and molded my pate in a plastic-lined ramekin. I served this with a sesame baguette and sliced green apples. We all loved it. Thanks!
