What You Need

1/4 cup (35 g) hazelnuts
1 tsp (5 ml) butter
1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
8 oz (250 g) button mushrooms, minced

Dry roast the hazelnuts on a baking sheet for 15 minutes in a 350 °F (180 °C) oven. Set aside.

Melt the butter with the oil. Sauté the garlic and mushrooms for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the chicken stock. Bring to the boil and let reduce by half, about 10 minutes. Add the Canadian Brie and let it melt.
