Recipe by Claudia Wey

With a reputation for being uber-rich and creamy, it's almost too filling for being merely and appetizer. This version retains the creamy reputation, but by using fresh mushroom stock and only a splash of cream in the sauce, this is a touch lighter. Don't worry, it still packs lots of hearty mushroom flavor.
