I'm a mixed breed I guess. Sometimes I prefer sauces on the side (usu if its a really fattening sauce), other times on the top is fine (for the only moderately fattening sauces).
However, GOD FORBID a really wet sauce touches any bread on my plate. I cannot tolerate wet bread.
When you start to cook, as when you begin to live, you think that the point is to improve the technique until you end up with something perfect, and that the reason you haven’t been able to break the cycle of desire and disillusion is that you haven’t yet mastered the rules. Then you grow up, and you learn that that’s the game.
