Mushroom risotto, simple, vegetarian, delicious

January 20th, 2018 | main dishes

Looking for a special mushrooms variety of really high quality, you will find it on the most beautiful of all Hamburg weekly markets, the Isemarkt. At the booth of Tarik Baltaci, the selection is huge. Mushrooms with fine-sounding names and wonderful flavors are waiting for the buyer: rose and almond mushrooms, cauliflower mushrooms, autumn trumpets, Pom Pom Blanc. And Tarik’s friendly and expert advice are free there! Fancy a mushroom risotto?

For this risotto Tarik recommended porcini mushrooms, almond mushrooms and chestnut mushrooms – and it was simply delicious! The very, very delicate almond scent and taste was really special. Of course, other mushrooms can be used instead depending on the season and what is offered. King oyster mushrooms for example are available all year round and taste very well in the risotto.

BBQ with deer

I like deer. In any form. I like deer so much that they can eat everything in our garden almost unhindered,  without really taking any serious action against it – from the tulip to the apple tree, from the phlox to the cranesbill. But of course that’s another “liking”. The culinary “liking” in this case refers to finely marinated deer steak from the grill. Who says that game must always come as a roast?

Langos – a Hungarian snack

In Budapest, you get it everywhere: Lángos – a fried potato-yeast dough spread with garlic and sour cream. Grated cheese and a touch of paprika complete the taste. Whether it tastes just as good at home… We tried it. And, yes! Lángos are delicious, even at home!
