My Grandma makes the best Ranch
Diving into Ranch- perhaps the greatest American sauce- took more than exploring American food and culture. The best of American cuisine often derives from the direct, almost assertive simplicity that makes the country great: baked beans, southern BBQ, good old-fashioned apple pie. But what makes simple food like Ranch good is not just the ingredients, or the balance of flavors, or the quantity of spices. It’s the people you’re making it for, the reasons you’re doing it in the first place. So for me, making a good Ranch took the whole family.
