by Thursday, November 3, 2011

If you're hunting for an original version of your beloved spaghetti, Here is the recipe that chef Peter Brunel had designed especially for my book Yellow Gold (Bancarella della Cucina selection 2009). Now that the cold weather really came, like cornmeal, no? I occasionally in place of the Pike I put bacon or sausage and the result is firmer but obviously really intriguing.
