Author Notes

This dish is amazingly rich, tasty, and wonderful. It could easily find its place on a high-class restaurant menu. Cinnamon and cloves give a delicate flavor, and heavy cream gives richness to this dish. It’s very easy to prepare at home and is great with grilled or oven roasted chicken. —Madona Giorgadze

What You'll Need
  • 1 pound mix of cremini and shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 cloves, cardamom and black peppercorns
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt
  1. Melt the butter in a pan and toss sliced mushrooms in it. Stir and cook over high heat for about two to three minutes, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour heavy cream over the mushrooms. Tie the spice mixture in a square of cheesecloth and add to the mushrooms.
  2. Turn the heat down and let it simmer for about 10 minutes over a low heat, covered, until the sauce thickens. Discard the cheesecloth. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
