Duxelles

Duxelles – Well this is a French term used for finely chopped or minced mushrooms, cooked with garlic and seasonings. Duxelles can be prepared using various seasonings and it makes an amazing filling for puff pastries, croissants, chicken.

I’ve been fond of mushrooms ever since and enjoy my pizza’s, pastas, noodles almost all dishes that are loaded with mushrooms. When I learnt about Duxelles, I instantly recollected the chicken and mushroom pastries I used to pick up from Gaylord, a restaurant and bakery close to our house. I didn’t mind waiting patiently for the next batch to get baked as they were so delicious. As a kid I didn’t know that minced mushrooms were called Duxelles. Like always, I wanted to recreate the same taste that I relished during my childhood days and so, here I am with the recipe for Mushroom Duxelles.
