The epitome of warming al forno dishes, our deliciously cheesy Wild Mushroom Lasagne is inspired by the mountains and forests of Piedmont. The location of this region, straddling Italy’s northwestern Alps, means that in the winter months the landscape is dotted with snow-capped peaks and people from across Italy, and the rest of the world, escape their towns and cities and head instead to Piedmont’s romantic chalets and ski resorts. Happy holiday-makers with rosy cheeks and growling stomachs return from days spent on the slopes in need for sustenance. Few dishes are better positioned to bestow warmth and comfort than lasagne, particularly when prepared with seasonal delicacies from the surrounding mountains and forests.
From porcini and pioppini to morels and chanterelles, Piemonte is home to a farrago of funghi varieties and these are prime for harvesting in the cold winter months. The abundance of wild mushrooms in the region means that, for thousands of years, they have taken pride of place in Piemontese cooking, playing a vital role in seasonal dishes like our tasty lasagne. Considered by the Romans to be an expensive luxury, we revel in the rich, earthy flavour that the wild mushrooms bring to this dish as we decadently layer them between hand-rolled lasagne sheets and our creamy bechamél sauce.
