I reassure you straight away, I shall not be the one to joust, I will take lots of pictures and let you know how it went.
It has also been a momentous week when I have decided to take the plunge and go freelance as a writer so from time to time expect to see links to my marvelous writing in a very different style from what you read on this blog
It has also been a week for tasting more Abel & Cole products this time it was their selection of fine, organic salamis produced by Arnaldo Fumagalli and his son Cesare, who work along the Po River in Northern Italy.
This pack includes a lovely mix of spices and textures.
You get 5 slices each of:
• Spianata Roman Salami – a sweet, slightly thicker salami
• Milano Salami – garlicky, peppery and sweet
• Lonza – like prosciutto but with a hint of fennel
The price compares well at just under £4.00 and the selection is really tasty, I find that when it comes to meat with organic products I can really tell the difference.
Incidentally, I found out that the word salami comes from the the plural form of the Italian word salame which itself originates from the word Sale meaning salt, makes sense for cured meat.
