How to make it
- Slice the mushrooms. Heat some of the stock and soak the dried mushrooms at least 10 minutes to soften. Remove tough stems and dice.
- ***When I first started at Rollande et Pierre, the chef came by and dropped 30 lbs. of mushrooms on my station and said, "I need these sliced as soon as possible for our marinated mushrooms" It took me almost 4 hours. When I left the restaurant 3 years later, I could "get 'er done" in under an hour and keep up with all my salad and appetizer service. All it took was lots and lots of practice with a very sharp knife.*****
- Melt the butter in a very large saute pan, add the shallots and mushrooms and cook over med-high heat until the liquid is released, and reduced. Add more butter if it dries up to much. Sprinkle with flour and toast the flour over the heat until the raw taste is removed.
- Add the vermouth, artichokes, thyme and seasonings.
- Stir and cook to thicken the mushroom base slightly.
- Add stock and cream and cook another 30 minutes over low-medium heat to thicken and reduce slightly.
- Fish out the woody stems of the thyme before you serve this wonderful fragrant woodsy soup.
