i made my first meat sauce (post italy) tonight. it was good.
only 'good' for a couple reasons. i am obviously my harshest critic on this one... coming from the food valley and eating the best that italy has to offer, then trying to recreate it is a very very hard task. also, dealing with mediocre to poor ingredients doesn't help. enough with the excuses. there's always room for improvement, and the crowd appreciated the effort. now i work towards a state of perfection that will shock and awe.
