  • 2 pounds assorted wild mushroom (chanterelles, morels, cèpes, porcini, shiitake, cremini, trumpets, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup minced shallots
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • 1 stem rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 sprigs parsley
  • 3 tbs. butter
  • 1/2 cup diced fresh tomato
  • 1/3 cup sherry
  • 2 quarts chicken stock
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Brush the mushrooms off with a damp rag to clean, then trim and slice.
  2. Place the butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, garlic and shallots. Add the herbs, tied together in a bunch or a “bouquet garni.” Cook for approximately 5 to 8 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked through.
  3. Add the tomato and sherry, bring to a simmer and cook until nearly evaporated. Add the stock, bring to a boil and turn heat down to simmer. Reduce by 33 percent, add the cream and simmer for about 5 minutes until soup thickens slightly.
  4. Remove the bouquet garni. Purée if desired. Season and serve with crusty bread.
