The second version of something does not mean it is going to be better. We were reworking our smoked pasta recipe and I was committed to the aesthetic of a black dough colored and eventually seasoned with roasted barley. Unfortunately, no matter how I tried the roasted barley and the smoked flour did not get along. The dough is beautiful and as far as aesthetics go 2.0 is the way to go. As for taste 2.0 has to go. No matter the beauty without the taste the dish fails.
Back to the original. It works, it stands the test of time and it is really good. Sometimes the first version is the right version.
