Win a mushroom hamper from Carluccio’s worth £45!
Throughout September and October, Carluccio’s is celebrating the mushroom season with events including a special range of artisan deli products, pop-up markets, with appearances from Antonio Carluccio, and a menu devoted to flavoursome funghi.
To help them celebrate, they’ve provided a beautiful hamper of mushroom products from Carluccio’s artisan mushroom range for one lucky reader!
The Carluccio’s Mushroom Hamper Prize:
The hamper comes in a branded box with a hand-tied ribbon and contains:
Dried porcini (20g, £4.95) – Specially selected, dried porcini mushroom slices. Every funghi fan worth their salt has dried porcini in their pantry.
Carnaroli rice (1kg, £5.95) – This medium-grain risotto rice is grown in the Po Valley. High in starch, it can absorb liquids for a long time while remaining “al dente” and makes a rich, creamy risotto. Enjoy with dried porcini.
Truffle oil (55ml, £7.95) – Olive oil infused with white truffle, delicious on risotto, pasta or grilled vegetables.
Porcini oil (100ml, £5.95) – Antonio’s favourite. Extra virgin olive oil blended with porcini mushroom, the ideal addition to risottos and meat dishes.
Porcini stock cubes (60g, £1.95) – A key ingredient for a flavoursome mushroom risotto.
Porcini sauce (180g, £4.95) – Porcini mushroom and tomato sauce, ready to use on pappardelle pasta or polenta. Our pappardelle egg pasta (250g, £3.95) is made with a bronze dye which gives a desirable rough finish for the sauce to cling to.
Complete Mushroom Book by Antonio Carluccio
Antonio Carluccio has been collecting, cooking and devising recipes for mushrooms for over 60 years. In this book he shares over 100 recipes that make the most mushrooms in dishes ranging from classic to contemporary. The book also has a detailed and authoritative well-illustrated field guide that helps distinguish between edible wild mushrooms and their poisonous look alikes.
The mushroom hamper
We used some of the ingredients in this hamper last night to make the stunning mushroom risotto recipe from the side of the rice packet. It was absolutely amazing. The dried porcini mushrooms are beautiful and the mushroom oil is a dream.
We had the porcini mushroom sauce over a beautiful pappardelle pasta and it was rich, decadent and utterly delicious.
The book by Antonio Carluccio is very inspiring and I can’t wait to cook from it. I’ve bookmarked a few recipes to try soon including mushrooms with lentils and Tuscan soup.
Carluccio’s mushroom markets are touring the country this autumn, offering a comprehensive collection of wild, dried, cultivated mushrooms and truffles. Visitors can learn from the Carluccio’s experts, including Antonio Carluccio, how to experiment with different varieties and try seasonal mushroom dishes.
