Lifting the Ban on Italian Cured Meats: Salumi per Tutti!

Lifting the Ban on Italian Cured Meats:  Salumi per Tutti! | Places to Eat | Scoop.it

Have you ever smuggled delicious pancetta home from Italy? The ban on importing salumi, at least some of it, has been lifted.
According to The New York Times, this is not a simple free-for-all. It isn't quite clear what the requirements will be for cured meats brought to the United States from Italy. But one thing is certain. We food lovers here in the U.S.A. will see more variety on our antipasti plate, and I can't wait.
I can't wait to host a gathering to celebrate the arrival of more variety. Now I just need to choose the perfect dry rose wine and olives to complement the feast. Salute!

Mariano, thanks. Used to live overseas, and while we have great flavors too, it's never a bad thing to have the best of both worlds...;-)
