I have been to Italy and had authentic lasagna. Yes, it was good but I really didn't think it was much better than my lasagna I make. I may be a food snob, but really, I want to be wowed if I go out to a restaurant to eat and pay good money for. I don't like to eat out often because I feel I can make it just as good if not better at home. I have been cooking since I was 11 years old (28 years) I really considered going to culinary school because I do love to cook but changed my mind after I worked in a kitchen catering for the news media during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
I feel like I perfected my lasagna after my friend dropped off a pan of lasagna after I delivered my first child. It was so good! I asked her what she did to hers because it certainly didn't taste like mine. She told me her secret and I haven't made lasagna the same since.
