Making fresh homemade sausage isn't a grind. It's fun and easy. I learned how from executive chef Joe Magnanelli of CUCINA urbana, who showed me his technique for this San Diego Union-Tribune story. And he shared two delicious recipes! Spending time in the kitchen with chefs is such a pleasure--and you always learn more than just a recipe. That's what makes these experiences so worthwhile for readers. I get to share chef tips that help home cooks be more successful with the specific recipes and they can be leveraged for other dishes they make.
