Global Cuisine: "Full English", "English Breakfast", "Fry Up"—whatever you decide to call it, this is a classic UK dish. People take it so seriously that it can become a controversial issue if one uses the wrong type of potato, tomato, or puts the beans in the wrong place. Keeping me warm and full all day, this is my favorite thing to indulge in when traveling in England.
Every autumn, when the temperature and humidity is just right, my mother and I wait for the perfect moment to go mushroom hunting in the neighboring forests. With our eyes peeled to the forest floor we pick only those we know to be edible.
Gathering only enough for our dinner we hurry home while the mushrooms are still at their freshest. Prepared in a simple manner, we use our old cast iron pan, a dab of butter, a splash of cream, pepper and salt and some herbs like parsley and rosemary. Nothing more. We want to savor the taste that every unique mushroom has to offer. With our plates warmed and ready they end their journey with glass of chilled white wine.
Mushroom picking in the forest is a favorite outdoor activity in Poland. My grandmother and her sisters loved picking mushrooms here, too. I enjoy hunting for mushrooms but would love it even more if only I could teach my dogs to sniff out the mushrooms, ala truffle pigs. My aunt started making this recipe 30 or 40 years ago. I don't know where the recipe originated. If anyone recognizes it, please share the source!
Foraging for mushrooms in the fog is such a vivid memory as it was a rare treat. My Dad was often on-call or worked odd shifts at the hospital so it was seldom we could all go out as a family during autumnal mushroom season. He was also the only one who knew which mushrooms were safe to pick and eat.There was a field adjacent to the hospital grounds which was the perfect spot for picking the little fairy ring mushrooms, as well as common field mushrooms and a few puff balls. We'd always come home famished and fry up our mushrooms treasure which tasted extra delicious after our morning out.
