bilby commented on the word duxelle
A mix of mushrooms and herbs used as a flavour element in sauces, stuffings, etc or as a garnish. Duxelles is said to have been created by the 17th-century French chef François Pierre La Varenne (1615–1678) and to have been named after his employer, Nicolas Chalon du Blé, marquis d'Uxelles I only came across this word because I'm a raging vegan and hence I read restaurants' descriptions of their dishes far, far too closely!
