Cookbook Countdown #11: KK ~ Italian mushroom ragout

I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
I am cooking from Kylie Kwong's earlier book 'Heart and Soul'
from her TV cooking show days, which I enjoyed.
These are all I have collected, there are two more books that 
are missing from my bookshelves!
and she is also available at FB!
Italian mushroom ragout - inspired by
franca and stefano manfredi - pages 42-43 
my adaptation:
4 peeled garlic cloves crushed,
1 small red onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced,
1 small can button mushroom,
fresh shiitake mushrooms, stem trimmed down
fresh brown button mushrooms,
fresh enoki mushrooms
fresh black cloud ear fungus~
white pepper, olive oil, butter
Chinese cooking wine
roughly chopped coriander and spring onions
for hubby's dinner, mushroom ragout
with mash sweet potato and pan fried salmon
