Ceps on lettuce and herbs can be prepared without great culinary knowledge - and they are the absolute eye-catcher at any buffet.
Just because raw food diet is natural food, it not only tastes fresh, but also looks beautiful. This proves the court "carpaccio of ceps", which has nevertheless recently been on the front page of a gastronomic magazine. You only need mushrooms, lettuce, herbs, vinegar and oil - and nothing else. This dish is pure simplicity and aesthetics. Exclusive however, it is of course still - if only because the mushrooms baby salad greens are not exactly what you can buy at the grocery store on the corner. Sure, these ingredients are not cheap, but enjoyed as a small but nice appetizer, it can be the gourmet star on every party.
I have at least so far made the experience that my raw food dishes that I brought with me to parties or dinner invitations - always were a kind of culinary highlight, because it’s new and exciting for most of the people. So most of my raw souvenirs at least provided plenty to talk, because people ask questions like “Is this all really raw?” or “Sure, that this is eatable?” And secondly, they are often amazed that it tastes so good, although, or just because it is not cooked.
However, I've used king trumpet mushrooms instead of porcini mushrooms and fresh oregano instead of the wild herbs from the original recipe. And this combination was incredibly tasty ...
300 grams king trumpet mushrooms
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
Sea salt, freshly ground pepper,
Mixed, small-leaved possible salads (arugula, lamb's lettuce, radicchio, watercress, etc)
Clean mushrooms and cut with a sharp knife into thin slices, arrange on a plate and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and a little salt. Serve the salad with raspberry vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper and serve it.
