Story of the recipe or story of the chef:

Being a mother of two girls and living in Dubai for 7 years, I found this recipe on the internet during my first year here. It worked the first time I tried it. And it’s a delight!



List of ingredients:

  • 500g penne pasta
  • 240g cep mushrooms
  • 1.5L cooking cream
  • 200g parmesan
  • 1  medium white onion
  • 1  cube of chicken stock
  • White wine
  • Salt
  • White pepper


Preparation Mode:

1.    Soak the cep mushrooms in warm water for 2 hours before cooking them. Strain them in a colander. Strain the water from the mushrooms in a sieve to remove sand. Reserve the liquid.

2.    Dice the onion and color it in the butter. Add the cep mushrooms, salt and white pepper. Leave to stew for 10 minutes. Add two ladles of white wine. Leave to stew for 10 minutes.

3.    Add the cream and chicken stock. Leave to simmer on a low heat until the sauce thickens. Add 3 tablespoons of grated parmesan and mix well.

4.    Cook the pasta in the mushroom water. Add the cep mushrooms to the sauce and serve with grated parmesan.


My top tip:

Serve with a nice bottle of white wine.
