This needs to be served piping hot, have polenta and mushrooms ready to go; as guests arrive. Create a spoonful bite-size bits as needed. What a delicious indulgence! You will need a lot of extra spoons, so if you are serving this to guests - have them ready, as well. Found this on Napa Style web site. Update:10/09/2006 -- we had this the other night and served it on Chinese soup spoons and it worked out great!
