|In my post on Tuesday I wasn't suggesting that people who eat pork eventually become fat, and nor was I bad- mouthing the meat itself.|
I was merely pointing out that people ought to have better things to do with their time than sit around on their rear ends watching piglets on a TV screen.
However, I'm sorry if I upset anyone who thought I had something against pork. On the contrary in fact, I am actually a huge fan of a good ham.
|Today my dad went to Gallo Nero, our favourite Italian delicatessen in nearby Stoke Newington.|
He brought home some of Michael's wonderful roast Tuscan ham which we buy regularly, amongst other great imported Italian delicacies.
Here it is. A far cry from the bland, lifeless supermarket hams full of water and salt. I find this flavoursome cold cut can be complemented beautifully by Dijon mustard, though Michael would probably never speak to me again if he knew I was using French condiments on his Italian meat!
