Chanterelles are served cooked. Add to mixed mushroom sauces, risottos or pasta dishes. Include in soups, casseroles and stir-fries.

Chanterelles need to be cleaned carefully as dirt gets stuck under the gills, so they need to be rinsed under running water and then dried on kitchen paper.

Chanterelles are best sautéed. Heat a little butter in a frying pan and gently cook the mushrooms for 5 - 7 minutes or until just cooked but still tender.
