Chef John Fraser of Dovetail Restaurant located in New York City offers the following tips for this recipe. "Make sure the mushrooms are brushed rather than washed. Use a pastry brush or damp towel until they are clean to the eye. Make sure that the oil begins to smoke before adding the maitakes to the pan. This will ensure a crunchy texture." For the squash, he says, "Make sure to cook the squash until the skin is al dente. It will continue to cook as it cools upon taking it out of the oven."
