I can attribute my new found appreciation for the melding of savoury and sweet to this recipe. Had I happened upon it myself, the chances of me actually going out of my way to cook it would be slim-to-none, this due to my (late) aversion to savoury dishes spiked with sweet. So thankfully I was in a state of blissful ignorance when first being served this dish. Several months on and it is now one of my favourite pasta sauces and what’s more I am now amassing a growing number of converts to the pleasures of the sweet/savoury combination.
I hope that you enjoy this dish just as much as I do. And should you, like me several months ago, not normally enjoy such a combination, I urge you to reconsider and give it a go. You might just surprise yourself!
