We had the privilege over the weekend of being part of a "Big Night" dinner cooked by our friend Ryan. The crowning achievement of the meal -- which came after three kinds of risotto (pesto, cheese and seafood) served on a platter in the manner of the Italian Flag -- was Timpano. For those who haven't seen the movie "Big Night," Timpano is the ultimate moment in the meal. What is it? A drum of dough containing pasta, meatballs, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, salami and who knows what else. As one of the main characters in the film says, "To eat good food is to be close to God." Amen to that!

I think you've been duped. Looks like a big o' wheel of cheese to me!
