I love flying in the wind ! This is a dish that my mother was preparing us regularly for meals in the fall and winter. I find that this is a dish well-comforting and full of flavor. And there, to give him a little air of celebration, it is a recipe for even more greedy than I propose to you, vol au vent with mushrooms with foie gras sauce, and yes, it is what it is !

What is with these flying in the wind, is that they can be served either as an input for up to 4 people, either in flat 2 (us, that is what we did).

This is a recipe quite simple and quick to cook and can be prepared in advance for what is mushrooms and sauce foie gras. It will suffice to warm up to the last moment…
