Cooking instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6.

Set the pan to one side as you will use it again and we want to retain any flavour the pan has gained from the searing.

  7. Return the pan you set aside to a medium-high heat, add the garlic and onion and cook for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and cook for 1 min. Reduce the heat, add the stock and 50ml (100ml) of cream and simmer for 5 min. Add the parsley
