In Boston we have such a cold cut culture........Every house always has cold cuts in the fridgeCippy;393525 said:I don't know. I have plenty of of Canadian ham, plenty of Spanish hams that are ridiculously expensive and of course Italian hams, Grandma would not go for the lame American knock offs, she and now Pops and I only went for imported Capicola (my favorite), Coppa, Mortadella, bresaola, Porchetta etc. We still go down to the same shop in what was once an Italian neighbourhood. I find the meat very high quality. Of course, it is not cured with the mastery handed down through the generations, but still high quality in LOS. Damn I am making myself homesick. 555
I couldn't touch the village chicken, skinny, tough and tasted like the garbage they subsisted on.
Tomatoes too I found awful. The tended to taste like the water they were grown with, swamp water. The wife hated tomatoes too until i finally got her to try a particularly sweet Roma. Now the grow in the garden next to the Thai Chillies. 555
