This really quick and easy sauce has delighted everyone I served this, including a very spoiled guest used to Michelin-starred restaurants and my 5-year old son. It is great with any meat or game, most fish (in particular tuna), or as a pasta or salad sauce. Also great for Christmas. I love it with ostrich or duck fillet.

How to Make Cheffy saffron sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice or chop the mushrooms. Finely chop the half spring onion if you use it.
  2. Put a little extra virgin olive oil in a small pan on medium heat.
  3. Fry the mushrooms until almost ready to eat to your taste (3 minutes for me). Add the spring onion if used.
  4. Add the wine (and the stock if you use it). Turn heat to low.
  5. Add the mascarpone, saffron, salt, pepper and fresh thyme. Stir until combined. Let it infuse on low heat for about 3-5 minutes for maximum effect. Decorate with some thyme leaves or shredded basil.
