Recipe notes

The secret to this recipe is in making sure that the 1/2 cup of wine used in it isn't your last, otherwise that would defeat the purpose of the 15 minute simmer: time enough to dash out on the balcony with the remainder in the bottle for a fag and a slag before the wretched hordes arrive demanding food.

Easily doubled.

"Il avait le courage de deux heures après minuit; c'est-à -dire le courage de l'improviste." pace Napoleon.
