Mostly, because I know my meal and my guests meals will always be amazing to the pallet and fresh. Is it expensive? A bit more than I would want to pay... More

We so appreciate a complete review and an honest critique. We've tweaked our French Onion recipe this year to make it vegetarian and it took a few tries to get it right!
