One of my favourite cooking styles is Italian. Many years ago, I had the privilege of becoming acquainted with, and lived among Italians families from the region of Calabria. I was therefore delighted when, upon reading this recipe, (as it appeared in "Saveur Magazine"), I recognized it as one which was created by Marcella Hazen "the acknowledged godmother of Italian cooking in America". Marcella has very quickly become my personal "Maven of Italian Cuisine". I do confess, however to "tweeking" blends of seasonings and ingredients to suit personal taste, but that is the essence of proficient cooking, isn't it? I believe that is the goal to which we all aspire to achieve; I am sure Marcella would agree. Marcella says "This is a recipe that starts out as two before becoming one. The chops and sauce... are cooked separately. Small rib chops should be cooked very briefly to a moist, flaming pink. Cook them too long, and they will turn gray and lose all their juice." I concur.
