I Can Practically Smell It

Fall is an ideal time to prepare a hearty dish like Bolognese

The food portal Epicurious has posted the latest episode in its video series called "Around the World in 80 Dishes." In this new video, a chef named Joseph W. DiPerri demonstrates his recipe for Pasta Bolognese.

He essentially caramelizes the different meats (beef, veal and pork) by browning them in olive oil and the fat left over from cooking diced pancetta. Browning is important, he says -- "color is flavor."

It makes me want to prepare a Bolognese this weekend.
