This weekend it’s been all about Hugh. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall that is. Hugh has to be up there with one of my favourite cooks, so I’ve been enjoying watching his new Veg Everyday series, albeit it a little slower than everyone else as I’m watching it online when I get a free hour in the evenings.
We made two meals this weekend that he’s made recently and both were delicious – I hope they become part of our cooking repetoir. The first one I wanted to share was his Mushroom Ragout with Soft Polenta, which we made for tea last night. I’ve only tried cooking polenta once before and it was a disaster – it didn’t taste of anything and we ended up dumping the lot.
This time the polenta was delicious – I think maybe last time I was too shy with my seasoning – a nice loose texture spiked with chopped rosemary from the garden and finely grated Parmesan. The mushrooms too were to tasty – I added quite a bit more red wine than the recipe asks for because the liquid kept disappearing (we were doing half the recipe) but it didn’t seem to be a problem!
We ate it with a pile of peashoots and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
