In a oven skillet pan over medium high heat, I add some olive oil and...

With these ingredients I started to prepare some mushroom tarragon cream soup with parma-bacon crisps to intensify the flavours. A quick chop of celery, onion and shallot, some… unsalted butter into a sauté pan while the mushrooms soak in a tepid water. I...
