Excellent. I did not add wine, so just used a little extra chicken stock. Also, I did not have any fresh shiitakes, so I used half fresh button mushrooms and half dried shiitake which I reconstituted in the simmering chicken stock. The lemon zest is a nice touch. One warning - do not add much salt before adding the cheese - I oversalted slightly as I forgot how much salt is in cheese (and there was not even any salt in the chicken stock.) I held out the asparagus tips until the end so I could use them as a garnish. Very yummy.
Omigosh, Mr. Mean Chef, I'm sorry to report that nobody liked it. The consistency was good. The color was excellent. It simply didn't appeal. Do you suppose the fault lies with my culinary skills or with their tastebuds? :(
you're the daddy faultless
