Birthday meal

Today is the Mathematician's birthday! But we spent it on a plane, so
tomorrow we celebrate.

I'm making Ragu Napoletano from a book I represented last year called
CUCINA DEL SOLE by Nancy Harmon Jenkins. Paraphrasing Jeanne Caroli
Francesconi, the author cautions this dish is "not a simple sauce;
rather 'It is a ritual celebrated weekly in every Neapolitan family
worthy of the name.'"

Neapolitan namesake, here I come.
