Introduction

  • Additional Information

    I love this just as it is served with pate and toast or with the wild mushroom open pie. You can amend amounts to suit your taste. You could also use balsamic vinegar instead of red wine, use red onions, add garlic, tomatoes, peppers or whatever you fancy.
