Fabulous, Lara! Of course there is always room for improvement, but I think you have the right idea! I can't wait to try this out myself! I think the ginger ale will have a more subtle essence of ginger that won't over power everything else! I can't wait to see what you have in store next! Hopefully your audience won't have to wait as long this time!
I think it looks perfect, like everything else you make!
alton brown is my hero, too! my new chef is like a tall skinny indian version of alton and i love him!!
