A while back, Marc posted one of his creative cooks and one of the ingredients was provolone. I commented that I found that to be a very bland cheese and he suggested that I should try some good Italian stuff, that if all I had ever had was from the deli counter, I would be amazed. Well, I don't get out much
and if I have ever had anything other than the deli version, I didn't realize it was provolone.
So, yesterday, I found some Auricchio Provolone Stravecchio from Cremona (northern) Italy, aged for 18 months-no idea if that's a long time for cheese-and I bought a small package. Man, what a difference!!! FLAVOR! Quite sharp actually. Good stuff!!
Broccoli and provolone tonight!! Will have to see what I have to go with that, 'cuz I am not
going out in this weather for a grocery run!!
will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded... dead.
