Ceps can be stir-fried, grilled, roasted, poached in a microwave or fried. To fry, heat a little butter in a frying pan and cook over a high heat for 4 - 5 minutes. To grill, preheat the grill to high, brush the ceps with olive oil and cook for 5 - 10 minutes. Sprinkle cooked ceps with chopped garlic and fresh flat leaf parsley to serve.
