Tosca features dishes straight from the Mediterranean to South Beach. The secret to these dishes, of course, is using high quality ingredients and allowing them to speak for themselves. Chef Didier Elena has shared a dish that's straightforward to prepare, allowing the rich, sensual mushrooms to speak for themselves.

that Thanksgiving is.

The idea that mushrooms are used as comfort food with delicate flavors

is something I really like."
