Porchetta

Right off the bat let me say to my good friend MKM, sorry about the picture of the pig. That being said, porchetta is one of my favorite food finds in Italy. It’s a pile of seasoned (fennel, thyme, rosemary) pork that’s salty and crispy tucked into a roll. You’ll find porchetta panini in some […]

The Day After

I just opened the fridge and realized that since I didn’t cook the grand Thanksgiving meal, we have no leftovers. In fact, we don’t have much of anything as I’ve made a point of avoiding the crowds at the grocery store all week long. I know that at some point in the not too distant […]
