Saw this on Great Food Live and thought it loked good. I then had a version in Switzerland which confirmed how fabulous it really is. Use this as a guide and make your own variation of it.

A delectable but very rich dish - I made this as posted with the exception of the parma ham - I used local smoked ham instead. I did not pre-grill the baguette, as I thought that it might be too crispy when they were oven baked later, I am glad I didn't, as my baguettes were crispy enough - EVEN with all the creamy mushrooms and cheese on top! We both loved this recipe but found it a tad on the rich side - so next time I will use creme fraiche I think and also cut back on the cheese a bit, even though we love cheese! We both loved the addition of the wine and kirsch - made for a very sophisticated taste, Made for PAC Autumn 2008 - thanks again Panda Rose! FT:-)
