  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups sherry wine

  • 1 cup vegetable broth

  • ¼ cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, or to taste

  • 4 cups diced chanterelle mushrooms

  • 1 tablespoon salt-free seasoning blend

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk sherry wine and broth into the flour mixture, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a simmer.

  2. Stir in Gorgonzola cheese until melted. Add mushrooms, seasoning blend, and pepper; simmer over medium-low heat until sauce has reduced and desired thickness is achieved, about 30 minutes. I think it's just about perfect when the bubbles start to look like a heavy rain hitting the ground.

Cook's Note:

I usually include a tablespoon of this spice mix whose ingredients read; garlic, pepper, onion, carrot, tomato, orange peel, basil, celery seed, mustard, parsley, lemon oil, red pepper, oregano, marjoram, and laurel.
