French Mushrooms Recipe

This French Mushrooms Recipe (champignons français in French) is a simple recipe that uses some lightly extravagant ingredients of wine, garlic, cream and French herbs. This provides some exquisite deliciousness to your mushrooms.

You can serve this as a side dish or snack, or even use it as a creamy pasta sauce if you mix it into some lovely fresh or dried pasta.

I have used some simply sliced button mushrooms in this recipe. But you could use any edible mushrooms you have available.

I am rather keen on mushrooms and have quite a few different mushroom recipes on my site. I have listed some of these at the end of this blog post.

French Cuisine and local produce

This simple recipe was also inspired by a meal I ate in France in 2022. I was near the beautiful city of Annecy and we spent a day exploring the city and some of the local Boulangeries and Cheese manufacturers.

In the evening we ate some couscous with vegetables, and some delicious roast lamb procured from one of the local shops. These mushrooms were served as a side dish that added a rich taste to the meal.

I love French food. Yet I am still utterly astounded at the incredible choice of ingredients that the French have in their local shops and supermarkets. It was always good, but it seems to have become even better over the years. Good food is such an important part of French life and culture. The French know how to eat well.


The local Carrefour was one of the most amazing supermarkets I have ever seen. A huge selection of delicious fresh produce with seafood, fish, meat and even freshly prepared sushi. 

And of course, the local shops that pride themselves on the quality of their produce mean you do not need to leave your village to eat well.

This dish goes very well with couscous, but is also great as a snack on some toasted sourdough bread, for example.

It would also make a great pasta sauce or accompaniment to a steak.
