      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

      Divide the mushrooms, garlic, mint leaves into 4 equal portions.

      Take 2 sheets of aluminum foil and place them on top of each other to create a sturdier base. Lift all 4 sides up to create a container. Place once portion each mushrooms, garlic, and mint leaves in the center. Drizzle with a 1/4 of the extra-virgin olive oil and white wine. Season with salt and pepper. Grab all the sides of the aluminum foil and tightly seal them closed, to prevent the steam from escaping.

      Repeat the above process 3 more times to create 4 individual servings. Place the packages in the oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Serve the sealed aluminum foil packages immediately. Allow each guest to open their own individual packages to experience all the aromas contained.
