Sugo History v1.0: I believe this is Sugo’s second version on containers, neat eh? And you thought you’d seen all the uses for a mason jar.
The Fatted Calf newsletter rolled in this morning. Certainly I was happy to see it, wasn’t expecting what I spied, no sir.
I’ve had a love affair with Sugo di Carne since its inception many years ago. Its weekly savory love was something I quickly became dependant upon. And it wasn’t until it disapeared and I wrote Ode to Sugo di Carne that I realized what it truly meant to me. It was over the weeks I realized what a seething, gaping hole it left in my heart. Spackle can only go so far for a broken heart.
So, when the newsletter was read by my eyeballs, they teared up ever so gently. My throat tightened and my tummy did a little squiggle. Sugo di Carne is BACK !!!
Here we find Sugo’s first plasticky type container. You would have purchased it this way probably 3 years ago. Gives you shivers down the spine, don’t it? Ain’t baby Sugo cute? Yes you are, you’re the cutest little thing! Yes you are. Boo boo boo boo boo, boo boo.
Wanna see what it looks like simmered for 35 minutes with a large can of fancy ‘maters over pasta?
I can’t speak for everyone, but this takes my breath away. The rich, yet tangy sauce with perfect fat content that brings said flavors to each and every taste bud. This is the kind of love Sugo has to offer.
Honestly, I don’t know anything about the rest of the menu for this Coming Saturday at the Farmer’s Market in Berkeley and San Francisco. And I don’t care. Sugo, little buddy, it’s great to see you back and in good health. Cheers!
