The 'Great White Hunter' and I were on a Meat Adventure which brought our journey to Jackson California. He suggested we go to Vinciguerra Ravioli to buy some pasta. The Great White Hunter, I can safely say; Has never met a ravioli he has not liked. With his limited garbled interpretive directions we managed to find Viniguerra establishment. This small pasta company is located in a building that most likely at one time was a drive-up burger establishment. It was small and eclectic looking business. There was a line at the take out only window indicating a good sign of pasta to come. We berthed 'Black Bart' our vehicle of mass meat gathering, in there spacious lot.
We took our spot in line and surveyed the small menu. It listed several flavors of raviolis and sauce. There were choices such as meat, cheese, pumpkin with sauces such as marinara or pesto. There was also fresh linguine and angel hair pasta sold by the pound.As we were in line we could here Mr. Vinciguerra giving very detailed cooking instructions to the customers ahead of us. These were very lengthy instructions that I am sure Mr. Vinciguerra has repeated hundreds of time. For some reason his instructions of "boil in water until done' had been expanded too epic portions rivaling the tome 'War & Peace". Boy could he talk. The line took forever because of the repeating of his instructional seminar.
We did finally get to purchase our pasta & ravioli. I cannot wait to get home and try them. Below you can see the man in action. I will talk to you soon because I need to 'boil in water till done;.
