This recipe is beautiful, and it looks complex!  Truth is that it is quite simple and leaves opportunities to use your own creativity.   In my cooking confidence course this is one of the first recipes we visit for beginning cooks.  There are so many alternatives, and it is so easy for students to feel comfortable being creative and using their own intuition.  I have listed some alternatives to play with and be creative with to help you build your confidence, too!
