What's "al dente" ?
Quote from: Madidus_Scientia on 09/11/2009 16:34:02What's "al dente" ?Barbarian! It means "to the tooth" or some such. What it BOILS down to is that the pasta is not too hard and crunchy nor it is so soft that it is mushy. it has some resistance and texture when chewed.Haute Cuisine class is now over.

They simply saw off the horns and clean up the ass.BTW - I always add a splash of aulive oirl to the water when I'm boiling pasta. As our kitchen is more than 2,000 feet up, my cooking is always Haut Cuisine.
