Ravioli. It runs through the blood of generations of my family. It is the consummate celebratory meal—birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and holidays. It is an event in itself—rolling the dough, preparing the filling, slow-cooking the sauce, tasting the final product. Everyone in the family has a technique and a favorite. These are some of ours.
