"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Fannie Flagg's Original Whistle Stop Cafe Cookbook, a well used gift from Lisa. It has an entire chapter on gravies and sauces. The book states, "A good gravy is like a good black dress; it can hide a multitude of imperfections. In fact you can put a really good cream gravy over cardboard and it would still make a delicious dinner.... A wonderful warm gravy can transform mystery meat into the best meal you ever had."

The chicken pot pie recipe also came from this cookbook.

A cook book is like a CD to me... if you find one or two good recipes per book (or CD), it's a fine book.
