Recipe from "New New Orleans Cooking", by Emeril Lagasse and Jessie Tirsch; Published by William Morrow, 1993.

Parmesan Truffled Potato Chips:

Using a mandoline or very sharp, heavy knife, slice the potatoes into rounds as thin as possible, and place in a large bowl of water to prevent discoloration.

Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot to between 340 and 350 degrees F.

Pat the potatoes completely dry. Add to the oil in batches and cook until golden brown, stirring with a long handled spoon to turn and cook evenly, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and place in a large bowl. Toss with the cheese, truffle oil, salt, and pepper. Serve immediately.

Garlic Mushrooms:

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, until softened and the mushrooms are tender and release their liquid, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the butter and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
