nothing says loving like cured pork.

la quercia prosciutto, profiled in the new york times magazine. how awesome is that?

the piece reports that, while herb and kathy were developing their prosciutto process, "The couple would move their Volvo wagon out of the garage to weigh and salt legs, then age them in their guest bedroom."

i know that this is true: during the terrible horrible no good very bad summer of 2003, when i visited la and her family, i slept soundly in that very guest bedroom, the pork legs swaying slightly above my head.
