Servings 450 g


  • 30 g Salted Butter
  • 300 g Mushrooms
  • 1 White Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 100 ml White Wine
  • 150 g Double Cream
  • 25 g Blue Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Truffle Oil optional
  • 2 tablespoon Mascarpone
  • 1 tablespoon Greek Yoghurt
  • Salt + Pepper


  • Melt the butter in a high sided frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Add finely chopped onion and soften for about 5 minutes, add the garlic and cook for a further minute or so. 
  • Roughly chop the mushrooms and add to the pan with a couple of large pinches of salt and cook for 4 - 5 minutes until the mushrooms are soft. 
  • Add the white wine, bring to a simmer and reduce for about 5 minutes. 
  • Stir in the cream, when it's at a simmer crumble in the blue cheese, add the mascarpone and truffle oil if using. 
  • Once the blue cheese has fully melted season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Use a stick blender to bring the sauce to your desired consistency. I really like this sauce to be course with some chunks of mushroom. 
  • Serve with steak, pork chops, chicken breast or stir into pasta.
