Additional Tips

This sauce can break if held too hot, so hold warm.
To hold sauce warm, add boiling water to an insulated coffee urn, allow it to sit for 3 minutes, remove water and hold sauce inside.
Infuse fresh herbs when reducing the wine to add more flavor.
Substitute grated Parmesan cheese for Asiago for another delicious option.

Great with seafood and fish. Can be good with pork, chicken and pasta.

At a nearly 150-year-old university, every stone column and classroom has treasured stories to tell.
