In The Magicians, Eliot was preparing an Amatriciana sauce and pasta when Quentin and Alice finally broke into the physcial kids’ bungalow. He added to the sauce some of the red wine he was drinking and some cream. Eliot said “I think if I weren’t a magician, I’d be a chef. It’s just such a relief after all that invisible, intangible b…s…, don’t you think?”
Amatriciana sauce is an Italian tomato sauce made with pancetta and a red pepper kick. It is typically served over bucatini, a hollow spaghetti-type pasta, but fettuccine works as well.
