Stuffed Mushrooms


We never met a mushroom cap we didn't like. These babies, from the kitchen at Eighty Acres, brighten rich Gruyère and buttery breadcrumbs with vernal chops of spring onions and Granny Smith apples. Salty nibbles of shrimp make us forget (or forget to care?) that dinner is still to come.
