 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3       pt           Chicken stock
      1/2   oz           Dried Cepes
                         Salt & pepper to taste
                         -----OPTIONAL-----
    1       tb           Dry Madeira
 
   Put stock - which should be home made and reasonably
   clear, and not oversalted, in a saucepan and start
   heating gently while you wash the dried cepes (porcini
   in Italian) in a sieve. Add the cepes to the stock and
   when boiling, turn down to a very gentle simmer. Don't
   cover, and allow to simmer until reduced to 2/3
   volume. Strain and allow to settle, as the cepes
   always give out a little sand, no matter how carefully
   you wash them. When ready to serve, decant from the
   sediment, reheat and season. Add the optional madeira
   and serve.
