Default Cuisine from Spain 16 - Setas

Listen here and tell us how it went!

This delicious mushroom tapa really is easy to make, no matter how frightened you are of the kitchen! Huge kudos and much respect for the first person to send us a photo of their version, cooked at home!

I felt quite pleased with myself listening to this as I already consider myself a master of this recipe! This dish is known as funghi trifolati in Italy. The method of cooking (trifolare) is used not just for mushrooms but also some other vegetables such as courgettes (zucchini), aubergines (eggplants) and artichokes (another favourite of mine).

The technique is always the same, olive oil, garlic and parsley. Simple, easy and very tasty!!!

The only problem in the UK is that the standard supermarket button mushrooms seem to be completely tasteless.

Delicious! I'm used to preparing mushrooms this way (with big sprigs of parsley and ground black pepper), but I've never thought of adding ham to the mixture. Thanks for the tip, this is going to be tonight's recipe!

I think this would taste great with risotto, too.

BTW, I never knew mushroom collecting was so popular in Spain, you'd think it would be more of a Eastern/Central European thing. Despite its rainy climate, Holland is not a mushroom-collecting country, and most people buy their mushrooms in the supermarket. In neighboring Germany, the variety of mushrooms available to the consumer is much greater, but the situation has improved somewhat. Until quite recently, you could buy nothing except button mushrooms in Holland, and they are not as tasty as some of their 'wild' counterparts. The chanterelle, which is bright yellowy-orange, tastes great in stews and risottos.

P.s.: is there a difference between hongo and seta, or can both terms be used for mushrooms in general?

Hongo can be used for Mushrooms but it has other meaning as well which is Fungus.

And is champiñones just the cultivated type of button mushroom?

My mushroom story: http://catavino.net/archives/596/2006/10/07/

I'm loving being in Catalunya with mushrooms all around me! Oh how I love them...here's a pic from La Boqueria the other day: http://www.obiscoito.com/2006/setas/
and a few more: http://www.obiscoito.com/2006/catalan-mushrooms/

Today we were hiking in the mountains and everyone had baskets of mushrooms, all types! Kids were hunting them like easter eggs! Yum YUM!

Catavino,
I live near BCN and love hiking. Where do you go? I'm new to the area/ only 3 months. I adore mushrooms and I tried Marina's recipe. It went over well.
Thanks
