Help me imitate a fantastic dish from Tasca in Brighton

jeisdorfer | Feb 1, 2011 10:51 AM

A month or so ago the BF and I had a fantastic dish at Tasca, a great little tapas place in Brighton. They're no longer serving this dish, but I wrote down the description:

"gnocchi tossed with portabella mushrooms, shallots and black mission figs in a truffle and cracked pepper cream sauce"

II know how to make gnocchi from scratch, but I need some ideas with the sauce. I'm pretty sure the sauce had sherry in it ... if you had to make this sauce from the description how would you prepare it?

My guess:
Saute garlic, shallots; add mushrooms. Deglaze with sherry. Add chicken or beef stock? Stir in heavy cream? Season w/ pepper ...?

Any ideas would be really appreciated!
