Chef Tips

  1. Butter and Extra virgin Olive Oil is heated together, to prevent the butter from burning.
  2. You may first pour the mushroom cappuccino, and then blend ½ soup, nutmeg powder and make a froth and top it. Then sprinkle with cinnamon powder.
  3. You may also use chilled milk to make the froth i.e. in a chilled bowl take the 1 ½ chilled milk and beat it with a fork. This will develop lots of froth, which can be collected with a ladle and placed on the hot mushroom soup giving it a cappuccino effect and then sprinkle with cinnamon powder.
