Flavour, not flood

Interesting video from a TV chef on how pasta should be served with the sauce adding to the flavour rather than being the overwhelming focus. I rather agree -- the best lasagne is the one where the noodles act as a structural component separating the meat, cheese and tomato rather than as something limp floating inbetween the other pieces of filling. I feel much the same way about fresh tomato sauces; make it sticky, thick, gungy, but sparing. Tomato-flavoured water is for the consomme.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
