Creamy garlic mushrooms as served by the Garlic Farm Field Kitchen when we are at events and festivals and of course the Garlic Festival on the Isle of Wight.



  • 500g mixed mushrooms (the more exotic the better but any will do)
  • 100g salted butter
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
  • A handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 100g parmesan cheese, grated (save a little for shavings at the end)
  • 100ml double cream
  • 2 large handfuls fresh rocket
  • Quality olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 slices ciabatta bread



  1. Place ciabatta upright on baking tray and drizzle with olive oil.
  2. Place under grill - careful not to burn! Alternatively, place in hot oven or toaster.
  3. Over high heat, melt butter and a little olive oil in a medium sized frying pan.
  4. Add mushrooms and toss until they start to brown.
  5. Add garlic and cook for a couple of minutes before adding cream.
  6. Cook for 2 mins then add parmesan. Sauce should be thick and cheese stringy.
  7. Add parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Place mushrooms on top of ciabatta, rocket on top, a drizzle of olive oil, pinch of sea salt and a few shavings of parmesan.
