    Dear Chef Mario,

    As a child a dear friend whose family are Italian made tomato sauce every Sunday there was a sweetness to this sauce that I will never forget which I have tried to replicate myself to no avail adding cinnamon, demerara sugar with red wine and cumin.

    I just can't get the right balance. My friend's grandmother was from the North of Italy.

    Thank you
