This week Chef Martin Wyss and cookbook author Muriel Miura visit the show to prepare the following recipes.

This show aired originally in November 2009.


For Mushroom Sauce:

* 1/2 pound mushrooms, cleaned and sliced thin
* 1/4 cup white wine
* few drops lemon juice
* 1 chicken bouillon cube or 1 scant teaspoon chicken base
* pinch white pepper
* 1 tablespoon butter or canola oil
* 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
* 1/4 cup whipping cream
* few drops Maggi seasoning
* salt and white pepper, to taste

Place mushrooms, white wine, lemon juice, chicken base and white pepper in saucepan; bring to a boil. Simmer over medium heat until mushrooms are tender and cooked through.

Remove from heat and set aside. In another saucepan, make a roux: Melt butter over low heat, whisk in flour, stirring constantly. Strain mushroom liquid into roux; bring to a boil and add cream, mushrooms and Maggi and simmer gently for a few minutes. Check seasoning; add salt and white pepper if necessary.

Set aside; keep warm.
