"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

I add chopped peppers, onions and mushrooms to this mixture when I boil the mixture......it helps to flavor the sauce even more!
