Button mushrooms wiped clean with stem popped out

Fill mushroom with Garlic-Herb Boursin cheese

Dip into tempura batter mix (available in most supermarkets)

(Be sure to completely coat mushroom to prevent cheese leakage)

Fry two or three minutes in hot but not smoking oil until golden brown. (Carefully dribble water into the oil and if it sizzles, it’s ready).

1 C sour cream

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Yvette Cardozo from the Seattle, Washington area, likes to visit interesting places and learn about interesting cultures and, if a tasty local dish is involved, so much the better. She’s eaten everything from gourmet food at the world’s finest restaurants to native food in Asia, the arctic, and all kinds of places in between.Yvette recalls being in Antarctica and going out on the land with Inuit elders in arctic Canada , then bagging a caribou. They dragged it back to camp and ate it on the spot raw. She quips, “Hey, if you like steak tartare….”Yvette, who is a veteran skier and driver, is RFT’s Ski & Dive Editor.
