The Sauce Off

The office was full of talk for weeks. Good natured bantering, nonstop.

We were about to have a Bolognese sauce off!

Who would make the Bolognese sauce which would reign supreme?

The day of the sauce off arrived and I rushed to gather the essentials. Ok not rushed. I leisurely perused Whole Foods. I could spend hours there choosing ingredients. I’m available for hire, if you’d like a personal grocery shopper 😉

My sauce sat and simmered for almost six hours. Its all about that simmer.

Three other sauces arrived and we had quite the taste off. Every sauce was quite different. Mine swung more towards traditional. I cannot fight against my Sicilian Italian roots.

A little voting system was in order..

Might I humbly say….. my sauce won!

Some argued Venue, that my hosting the completion had a sway. But the sauce SPOKE FOR ITSELF.

Thank you very much.

Have you ever hosted a sauce off or cooking competition?

  1. I LOVE the idea of a sauce off. I have always wanted to get our family together and do an iron chef sort of cook off, where you each get one ingredient and have to make something with it. Congrats on winning!!

  2. It is all about the simmer. You saucier you. (pronounced the French way, NOT sauce, saucier, sauciest.) Any chance you can reproduce above sauce in a more friendly come-on-over-for-dinner type environment? 😉
