When I was about 8-9 we travelled to the capital to visit an Aunt who came back from a vacation in Italy. She prepared what I much later found out to be Spaghetti Bolognese. It was a memorable experience because I remember sitting in her kitchen and wondering how these ingredients could go together and form a dish I would enjoy. Coming from a 3rd world country, meat was something most people considered luxury, not to mention her use of wine in cooking which I thought was strange. I instantly fell in love with cooking realising the kind of almost magical experience that comes from trying out something new and interesting.
Few years back I contacted her and asked if se could teach me the exact recipe, of course she couldn’t remember at the time but after much explaining,she recalled. I paid her a visit and got the recipe from her and could have sworn it tasted just as I could remember.
My proposed restaurant draws recipes from across boarders but with much attention on healthy sustainable food. I modified this recipe taking out minced meat and replacing it with fish. Also because I realised fish goes really well with pasta. The resulting recipe was a hit and will be a top featured dish in my proposed restaurant. Hope it works with you as well
