This is one of my husband’s favorite dishes. When he was growing up his grandmother was a mycologist (it’s okay, I didn’t know what it was either!). Mycology is the study of fungi. She would forage for wild mushrooms and then cook them for her family.
I am not a mycologist…if I went foraging for wild fungi, the results may not be safe to eat! So, when I can find wild mushrooms at the grocery store or farmer’s market, I use them, otherwise, a mixture of whatever mushrooms are available will work as well.
Debbie assigned this tapa to me for her Comida de España Gr8 Dinner. Vince’s grandmother typically sautéed the mushrooms in garlic and olive oil with a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes. We love the Spanish version with the addition of the white wine and lemon juice!
Serve with toothpicks so everyone can help themselves to small bites...Tapas style!
