re: Beef Ravioli with Red Sauce (photos) - No Disrespect But
[quote]you are trying too hard. [/quote] LOL. I took it easy on him. For example, it's counterproductive and wasteful to put oil into fresh pasta dough - it inhibits the development of the gluten that gives pasta its texture, and it makes the texture greasy. Fat is [i]never, ever[/i] included in ...

re: Beef Ravioli with Red Sauce (photos) - No Disrespect But
Curious. Italians tend to prefer cream/butter-based sauces with fresh pasta. And, as you suggest, to prefer gentle sauces with stuffed pasta. More shocking still is the fact that the ravioli weren't properly sauced. Pasta must be lightly but completely coated with sauce while still cooking, in...

re: Restaurant recommendations for St. Louis? - No Disrespect But
Best fine dining in St Louis is The Crossing in Clayton. Fresher and more interesting food than Tony's, and just flat-out more competent, consistent and professional than Niche, Sidney Street Cafe, etc. Fine cocktails and small plates at Taste by Niche in the Central West End (better, more consis...

re: What are the best sandwiches in Louisiana? - No Disrespect But
Interesting points. I find that bread very pillowy and soft, which texturally allows the crunch of the fried oysters to be highlighted (unlike crispy New Orleans French bread - which I certainly prefer for something wet like roast beef in gravy). The fact that the "pan bread" doesn't flake and crumb...

re: Anybody here ever eat at K-Paul's La. Kitchen? - No Disrespect But
If K-Paul's gave the same consideration and care to vegetables as it does to proteins and starches, I'd call it the best reaurant I've ever visited. It consistently delivers the strongest, most thrilling flavors I've experienced in a restaurant. You should know that K-Paul's has been shunned by l...
