  1. Smash and chop two cloves of garlic. Put 2 tbsp of butter in a small pan and add an approximately equal quantity of chicken stock.
  2. Heat the pan, medium-high, until the butter melts and then drop in the garlic.
  3. Simmer for a few moments and then put in the cleaned trimmed mushrooms.
  4. Simmer open very gently for about 10 minutes so that the butter and water foams into a smooth sauce and some of the water evaporates away.
  5. Serve hot as a starter.
