TV personality and celebrity Chef Ed Baines has produced a series of videos for the Mushroom Bureau demonstrating how to get the most from cooking with mushrooms.
Though often overlooked, there is a particular method for cooking mushrooms to ensure that they taste their very best and it has become Ed’s mission to demonstrate how best to work with this unique and versatile ingredient.
The short video clips – which can be viewed for free – show how to properly cook and prepare Mushrooms, using Mushrooms on toast as the perfect example; Step-by-step demonstrations of Ed cooking his mushroom inspired dishes, including Chicken and Mushroom Casserole and his Mushroom and Ricotta Filo Bake. There’s also a recoded Q&A session, with Ed answering common queries about cooking with mushrooms.
Ed Baines said: “Mushrooms are a truly unique ingredient in cookery, the huge range of types and flavours they give is impressive. The way you can use mushrooms not only as an ingredient but also as the centre of interest for dishes makes them stand out.”
The videos are perfect for those looking to learn or perfect their cooking skills. And the use of technology now means you can now watch the YouTube videos on your phone whilst cooking along with Ed, as he advises you on how to prepare your dishes with style and ease.
