August 2003

4 tablespoons (60ml) olive oil
4 tablespoons (60ml) fish sauce
4 tablespoons (120g) honey
8 teaspoons chopped fresh lovage or celery leaf
2 teaspoon ground black pepper
32 oz (900g) large open mushrooms, thickly sliced

Combine the oil, fish sauce and honey in a pan and bring to the boil. Add the lovage and pepper and the sliced mushrooms. Cook out briskly in order to reduce the liquids so that, when you serve, the fish sauce and natural water will have been boiled away and the honey and oil give a glace to the mushrooms.
