Wanted to give this recent article on the Food and Wine blog a boost...

Back in California now, after a long time away.  Culatello will be my focus for the time being, while the next project gets put together.  When my son and I spent time at Spigaroli end of summer 2013, I was struck by the similarity of the the foggy Po River basin as it passes through Polesine parmense, near Busseto, to the California Delta.  Here's a furry culatello from Spigaroli's ancient stone caves

and two experimental ones from il Buco's salumeria in NYC.  They're coming!!

Excited to work on these beauties and see how they turn out!!
