I don't remember what this thing is called, but I tried it at a Spanish bar I went to to grab a bit to eat and warm up after almost freezing to death. In March. LOL Anyways, its baguette, cut diagonal in pretty large but not too thick pieces, with combo of fried mushrooms and ham on top, sprinkled with cheese, and baked for a few minutes. Just repeated it at home. It turned out awesome!!

I guess what you had is called a tostada. Very tasty!<br />
<br />
Yes, I get like to get inspiration from restaurants too. The best one I've done, I think, is a soufflé. I learnt the principle of making soufflés from a French cookery book (a passion fruit one), but I had an amazing chocolate and pistachio soufflé in a restaurant once which I wanted to make.<br />
<br />
It took me a couple of goes to get it right at home, but now it's one of my favourite desserts to cook if I'm entertaining. Really fab!

oh souffle isn't an easy one to make! good for you! :D well, I looked up tostada and from the pics I see its made on a tortilla or something simillar, but the one I had was actually on a baguette and had no fresh veg on it, just cooked goodies.

Ah, I think what you saw just now when you looked it up was a Mexican tostada, not a Spanish tostada. Very inconsiderate of them to use the same name for something different ;-)
Try searching something like - Tostada de Setas y Aliloli. Then you shouild see Spanish ones!
The funny thing about soufflés is that they're actually not as difficult to make as chefs like to pretend. The only real trick which the cook books don't tell you is that you have to undercook them rather than overcook them. So, the second you feel they've risen, you have to take them out of the oven or they'll overcook and not taste right.

Several years ago I have ordered chivice while on vacation in Key West. It was so delicious that I engaged the waiter in a conversation about the ingredients in the dish. once I got back home I looked on the computer for different recipes I found a couple that I liked, mix the ingredients together I made the best chivice ever. I still make it to this day!
