Very good! I will serve it for party,card games many the things.
This one is very good, except, we forget the peppers. One or two cranks on the pepper mill for course ground black pepper is all you really need. Most of Chef John's recipes always call for hot pepper, but they really are not necessary. I for one don't like to burn my taste buds to the point I can't taste the good stuff in his recipes.
