A wonderful selection of sure-to-please mushroom recipes.
The combination of crisp phyllo pastry and a colourful yellow pepper sauce makes this Severn Lodge dish a stylish vegetarian entr? Hubert Obermeier, the executive chef, drops small spoonfuls of tomato sauce into the yellow pepper sauce and gives them a dramatic swirl.

The earthy tastes of shiitake, cremini and oyster mushrooms and barley combine in a dish that goes with many entr? (at Severn Lodge, it's served as a base for grilled tuna). Other grilled options to consider are chicken, strip loin steaks, pork chops and salmon.
While Obermeier likes to use colourful mushrooms, such as golden chanterelles, for this elegantly light appetizer, whole white button mushrooms are an excellent stand-in and are easier to get and much less expensive.
Obermeier's mushroom soup is smooth, with its creaminess coming more from potatoes than from the splash of cream, and has a late, liberal addition of mushrooms that have been saut? to intensify their flavour and add texture to every spoonful. Shiitake caps are the most woodsy mushrooms available in produce sections.
Mushrooms inspired this delicious fall salad in my kitchen. The salad is substantial enough to feed six if you increase the number of lettuce leaves.
