4 servings --
1 pound portobello mushrooms, stemmed, dark gills removed, caps

1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, caps cut into
6 tablespoons olive oil
3 14−ounce cans (or more) vegetable broth

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Madeira
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup whipping cream

50 Chowders Writing in the same practical and unintimidating style that made his previous books classics, award-winning chef Jasper White presents the first-ever comprehensive chowder cookbook, filled with illustrated instructions and eight pages of vibrant color. The chief strength of this book lies in its enthusiastic descriptions and expert presentation of an astonishing range of chowders, from cherished favorites like New England Clam, Manhattan Red, and Corn to exotic newcomers like Bermuda Fish Chowder (best served with an inspired side-pitcher of rum), Pheasant and Cabbage Chowder, and Nantucket Veal Chowder.
Preheat oven to 400F. Line 2 large baking sheets with foil. Divide mushrooms
between prepared baking sheets. Drizzle mushrooms on each sheet with 3
tablespoons oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper; toss to coat.
Cover with foil. Bake mushrooms 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking
until mushrooms are tender and still moist, about 15 minutes longer. Cool
slightly. Puree half of mushrooms with 1 can broth in blender until smooth.
Set mushroom puree aside. Melt butter in heavy large pot over medium−high
heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until onion is tender, about 8 minutes.
Add Madeira and simmer until almost all of liquid evaporates, about 2
minutes. Add flour; stir 2 minutes. Add 2 cans broth, cream, and thyme. Stir
in remaining cooked mushroom pieces and mushroom puree. Simmer over
heat until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Season soup to taste with
salt and pepper.
