My name is Alisa Infanti and I am the recipe developer and food photographer for The Delicious Spoon. I live in Hamilton, Ontario and am a wife and mom of two so I understand how important it is to be able make a meal for my family that is as easy to make as it is delicious!
As a kid you couldn’t get me to eat a mushroom. I mean in school they tell you it is a fungus and then well, that was game over for me. It wasn’t until I was at my friend’s home for dinner and their parents served mushrooms in a pasta dish and my mother’s rule “eat what is put in front of you” rang in my head. So down the hatch that mushroom went and I have been a fan ever since. I love the subtle woody and earthy flavour and meaty texture of mushrooms and now add them into my recipes whenever I can.
We have guests in the Kitchen! Loreto & Nicoletta of SugarLoveSpices are sharing their simply divine recipe for a mushroom and lobster risotto!
This dish is a luxurious plate full of flavour, texture, and aroma. Your first spoonful will reveal this creamy rice with hints of tomato and white wine, rounded with the plump earthy flavour of mushroom, alongside sweet onion and garlic. We cannot forget those juicy tender pieces of lobster that tell your taste buds THIS IS IT!
We have a guest in our kitchen today!! Heather from Beerx is here, and she has an exciting gnocchi recipe to share!
Sweet potatoes, beets and potatoes have regularly been the vegetable of choice in common gnocchi dough. I decided it was time for mushrooms to shine. Roasted with garlic and butter then pureed smooth these little dumplings are light as a feather and have incredible earthy flavours, perfect for any sauce especially this smoked gorgonzola cream sauce.
The most time spent on this recipe is shaping the pasta, however it is really simple to do and little ones can enjoy helping out.
We have a guest in the kitchen! We’re thrilled to have Loreto and Nicoletta of SugarLoveSpices joining us again, sharing a delicious hot and sour soup with fresh shiitake, enoki, and oyster mushrooms.
A play of spicy meets acidity and sourness adding in meaty exotic mushrooms, soft velvety tofu, crisp bamboo shoots, and beansprouts to an end result of pure delight! Wanting to put something different on the table tonight? Why not be adventurous and make this delicious soup!
