total time

0 HR 0 MIN


crusty bread like ciabatta
1 clove
As many as you can muster
Egg yolks
Dijon mustard
½ tsp
White wine vinegar
Olive oil
230 ml
Grated, a scrape
½ tsp


Step 01

For the Chanterelle Bruschetta

  • On a hot pan melt a knob butter until it foams.
  • Then add a handful mushrooms.
  • Try not to agitate the pan too much as this will release water from the mushrooms and they will stew.
  • It is best to cook the mushrooms in batches for this same reason, too many and they will stew in their own juices.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes and continue with the next batch.
  • Toast the bread and rub a clove of garlic along the toast.
  • Serve the toast with mushrooms on top and a little of the mayonnaise drizzled on top.

Step 02

For the sumac and garlic mayonnaise

  • Place two egg yolks in a bowl and add the mustard, vinegar a pinch of salt and some freshly ground pepper and mix well.
  • With a damp cloth under the bowl to prevent it from spinning, pour the oil at a steady trickle while whisking vigorously.
  • If the oil is poured too fast or is not whisked enough the emulsion will start to split.
  • If this happens, to save the mayonnaise, add a few drops of water and keep whisking, it will come back beautifully.
  • When all the oil is added, add a little grated garlic and the sumac.
  • Check for seasoning, it may need a dash more vinegar, mustard, garlic or another pinch of salt.
