If you read yesterday's post about the beet salad, you'll know why I am sending out the link to this article.
It explains in a nutshell why I am drawn to that dish, and in general, why we find certain dishes so appealing. The marinara that I liked at Bernini because of the hint of sweetness? Explained!
Understanding the fundamentals of opposing flavors can't help but make us better cooks. My compliments to the chef on a great article.
