Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is the recipe Pete's namesake Dad, Tony Payton, developed over a lifetime of visits to Italy. Relishing fine dining and spending weeks in Italian cooking classes, his main passions through it all remained fine wine and Caesar Salad. One of his goals in all this was to perfect his own recipe for the perfect Caesar Salad. This recipe represents his final satisfactory recipe.
