“This is my first dish on the app. I rediscovered my passion for cooking after reading Anthony Bourdain’s - Kitchen Confidential. This is by no means a complex dish. It’s simple honest and will bring a smile to the eater. After following on this by reading Marco Pierre Whites Autobiography and Gordon Ramsey’s Autobiography I believe good food is all about fresh ingredients, good combinations and ones that you can enjoy over and over again. I hope you enjoy.”


Easy 👌


2 cloves garlic (grated)
2 tsp olive oil
10 button mushrooms
