Exotic Mushrooms on Toast

In the depths of the COVID lockdown, when foodies missed feeding friends and had nobody to share recipes with, South Sensation set up #eatsouth. It’s a gaggle of food fanatics who are passionate about local produce and supporting our amazing local producers.

This dish was created within our New Forest Mushroom Collection.
