Notes about this recipe

    I made 1/2 recipe and the sauce reduced more quickly. The sauce was good, although not quite as good as some versions I've had. Still, this was simple to make and delicious.

    This was pretty good but not up to Ina's usual standard. The sauce has a nice flavour but it is a bit one note as it is a bit lacking in acidity. I would add some green peppercorns with a bit of their brine to elevate the flavour profile a little. Otherwise this was just ok.
