Wonderful Mussells broth. I added some saffron threads which provided a nice taste though they are terribly expensive. The broth made a nice dipping sauce for crusty bread.""

I used lemon zest instead of orange zest.
I hand manipulated the cold dough til it became easy to make a nice ball.

This was absolutely awful. The worst thing I think I have ever made. And, I did watch her make the dish, so I followed her technique. The taste was extraordinarily bad.
