Their earthy flavor and hearty texture make them absolutely one of my favorite ingredients. Here I use shiitakes and chanterelles, and when you try this you’ll understand why these fancy varieties attract all the attention like the fun guys they are! They get a quick sauté in fresh herbs and are served mounded on scrumptious sourdough.

  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 25 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10 Minutes


  • 8 ounces chanterelle mushrooms
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • ¼ cup The Parm
How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F if toasting the bread in the oven.
  2. Do not wash the mushrooms under running water; rather, take a damp cloth or paper towel and brush off any visible dirt or debris. Trim the bottom ¼ inch of the chanterelle stems and trim the woody part of the shiitake stems if necessary. Slice the chanterelles and any large shiitakes. If the shiitakes are fairly small, I prefer leaving them whole.
  3. Heat a cast-iron skillet or frying pan over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Sauté the mushrooms with the rosemary, thyme, and parsley for about 4 minutes. Add the white wine, salt, and pepper and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until most of the liquid is evaporated.
  4. Add the lemon juice and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Meanwhile, brush the sourdough slices with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and either grill oil side down in a grill pan or toast oil side up on a baking sheet in the oven until golden brown.
  6. Top each slice with a mound of mushrooms and garnish with about 1 tablespoon of The Parm. Serve immediately!
