In the old days you had to carefully read through the recipe to check you had all that you needed for the dish. Then they introduced the ingredients list at the beginning, which made it harder to miss an essential component. You have an ingredients list, but it does not list all the ingredients: about half of them are found only in the detail of part 1 of the method.

This gravy receipe does not seem like the one he had on the show. He was talking about making it ahead and roasted some veggies with chicken wings. It look delicious and I am interested in getting that receipe.
