Amateur Gourmet Tomato Sauce Awards: Tony Massarone!

For those who remember my You Will Make My Tomato Sauce entry, I concluded by saying: “Nothing would make me happier than to hear that a non-cook among you is going to try my pasta sauce recipe. As a reward, I will mention your pasta-sauce-making attempt on the mainpage and laud you and revere you for all to see. E-mail me directly if you do this. I will be so so happy.”

This morning I woke up to the briiiiiing of an e-mail message from Tony Massarone who writes:

“In response to your article entitled ‘You Will Make My Tomato Sauce,’ my assistant Amy and I have indeed made your so-called “delicious” sauce under the direction of Master Chef Baby Owen. After extensive testing, we conclude that it does, in fact, bring all the boys to the yard. The video whose link appears below chronicles our adventure (I would right-click and save as it is 15.7MB). Please feel free to do with it as you wish, but we do ask that all applause and screams of “Sundance” be held until the end.”

And here, of course is the link to the video:

Link!

Only problem: my stupid mac won’t let me play it! Why can’t I play .avi movies? I downloaded two .avi players and still can’t play it. And Lauren’s PC computer couldn’t play it either, but that’s not saying much. The little hamster on a wheel that makes her computer work has developed a severe case of hepatitis, dementia and carpel tunnel syndrome. The noises he makes are ghastly.

Anyway, my sincerest congrats to Tony Massarone! Anyone else who tries a recipe, e-mail me directly and you too will get mainpage props.

  1. You can watch it with Windows Media Player, which is what my computer chose my default.

    The video is great. Their baby wears an “I Love Amateur Gourmet” t-shirt and narrates for us with footnotes after each shot. (I.E. “Mashed Potatoes… mashed up like your soul”)

  2. I was born Carmina Massarone, my dad’s name is Peppino Massarone, born in Fondi, Latina, Italy.

    I just wanted to know if we were related.

    Hope to hear from you soon
