Lyndey Milan’s Mushroom and Brie Flan

Preparation time
15 Minutes
Cooking time
24 Minutes
Serves
4

INGREDIENTS

4 large (175g) flat or portobello mushrooms

6 large oyster mushrooms or 150g pack mixed mushrooms

50g Shimeji mushrooms (if not in mixed pack), trimmed

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

2 sheets butter puff pastry

140g brie or camembert, thinly sliced

2 tsp lemon thyme leaves, finely chopped
+ extra sprigs to garnish

2 tbsp chopped chives

1 egg yolk, lightly beaten

METHOD

1. Preheat oven to 220ºC (200ºC fan-forced).

2. Place the flat mushrooms on a baking tray. Brush generously with olive oil, season and bake for 8 minutes. Add oyster mushrooms or other mushrooms, sliced if large, and bake for another 2 minutes. Remove.

3. Place pastry sheets on two baking trays lined with baking paper. Fold the pastry 2cm in on all sides to make a border. Prick all over inside the border. Place in oven for 4 minutes. Remove and place cheese all over the centre. Sprinkle over herbs. Arrange mushrooms decoratively on top. Brush exposed pastry with beaten egg yolk and return to oven for 20 minutes or until puffed up and golden.

4. Remove to a board, cut into slices and garnish with extra lemon thyme sprigs and serve immediately.

Lyndey’s note: You can buy pasta packs of mixed mushrooms, which include varieties like King Brown (slice in half lengthways), oyster and shimeiji.

Impress with: Giovanni Pilu
Words by Mark Hughes on 1 Jul 2015
Sardinian-born chef Giovanni Pilu speaks proudly of 17 years of restauranting in Sydney. He has had great success, starting with Cala Luna at The Spit and now at one of the most beautiful venues in Australia, Pilu at Freshwater, on Sydney’s northern beaches. But more than that, he has personally educated Australians about the unique cuisine of Sardinia, and how it fits into the deliciously varied world of Italian food. “When I first came here Sardinian food was very unknown to Sydneysiders,” says Giovanni. “So when I started my first restaurant and cooked Sardinian food it was quite challenging. People had never seen it before, so to get them to trust what we did wasn’t easy. But they really enjoyed it. Now, people are demanding it, so it has turned a bit.” While there are major differences in food across the regions of Italy, the cuisine of Sardinia is perhaps the most distinct. “It is very different from say Lombardy, Lazio or Tuscany, where things can be similar because they are all attached to one another,” says Giovanni. “Being an island that was invaded by so many different cultures throughout history has resulted in a crazy diversity of food and culture and created a cuisine that is very unique.” At the heart of Sardinian food is seafood, game and pecorino (cheese). “If people say pecorino, they know it is from Sardinia. It is a big part of our menu at Pilu, to the point that our cheese plate is only made up of pecorino.” Watch our interview with Giovanni Pilu below: Check out the recipe for Giovanni's beautifully simple Pecorino broth with pumpkin & chestnuts as well as his delicious recipe for Malloreddus with chickpeas, vongole, chilli and parsley .
