Ceps:
We recommend slicing them finely whilst still semi-frozen (so allow to thaw for up to 30 minutes) - this will help them keep their shape.
For the best presentation, slice down through the mushroom lenghtways - you'll get a perfect profile in each slice.
Cook for 2-3 minutes - either by sautéing in butter, or by adding straight into your finished sauce.
If using whole, allow to defrost prior to cooking, and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Conserve the defrosting juices to add to your sauce, simmering to reduce prior to serving.
Complement with a squeeze of lemon juice - the acid really brings out their flavour.
Please note: Take care not to overcook your Ceps, like all mushrooms, they are composed of mostly water and can go slimy if allowed to steam or boil.

Chanterelles:
We recommend keeping these whole for the best presentation.
For best results, cook from frozen.
If defrosting them, conserve the defrosting juices to add to your sauce, simmering to reduce prior to serving.
Great paired with sweett and strong savoury flavours like smoked streaky bacon.
Serve as an ideal accompaniment to wild game meats.
Please note: Chanterlles can have a slight bitter edge to their flavours - this is a natural feature of this mushroom. We suggest cooking them with shallot or pairing them with another naturally sweet ingredient to balance this subtle hint of bitterness.

Morels:
We recommend keeping these whole for the best presentation.
For best results, cook from frozen.
Cook for 2-3 minutes - either by sautéing in butter, or by adding straight intor your finished sauce, ensuring cooked through before serving.
If defrosting them, conserve the defrosting juices and add to your sauce, simmering to reduce.
Delicious with fresh fine herbs like chervil or chives.
A cream sauce will help to bring out and complement their complex, earthy flavour.
Please note: Our hand picked wild Morels have been hand brushed and washed for your convenience. However, occasionally traces of soil and grit can remain in the open honeycompb texture of these mushrooms, despite our efforts to remove it.

Mushrooms are not a particularly favourite vegetable for me, but I did find these had more of a pleasant taste than others I've had.

Only tried one pack of the mushrooms to date but found them delicious considering we've never tried any other type of mushroom before, look forward to trying some more soon.

Was very bland, didn't really taste of anything. We’re sorry the Wild Mushrooms were not as you anticipated, but thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have now been in touch and resolved this to your satisfaction, but please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

Mixed reviews so far. Tried the morels with pasta, in a bacon, cream and white wine sauce. I liked the mushrooms, but my wife wasn't convinced. Will shortly try the other two types, which may generate a more positive overall review !

Again terribly disappointed. When thawed they were totally pulpy. The only good thing when thawed the water that came from them was good for cooking. Thanks for your feedback.
We're sorry we disappointed you in the first place, but delighted that you feel we dealt with the matter properly. If our customers are happy, then so are we.
