    Where? I’d like to eat there.

    The food is, I am sure, as delicious as it appears. Gastronomic eye-candy. I have no idea in what restaurant these photographs were taken but I suspect it was Ristorante FrZ.

    Fr. Z, have you ever considered putting together a cookbook? Your food looks so good!!!

    Proscuitto. And its Spanish cousin, jamón. I was introduced to this special ham when I visited Spain.

    My fiancée’s sister owned a café. We visited her there and she fixed me a sandwich. I took a bite and she said “it’s jamón” with gravitas. I couldn’t understand why ham was so important, until I visited the Carrefour.

    The Carrefour is like a European Target. Its butcher was festooned with legs of pigs just sitting out there in the open, cured of course, into wonderful jamón just waiting to be thin-sliced and enjoyed.

    Back home in California, I managed to find jamón serrano, which is a low grade, but it spoiled so fast. Soon I developed a taste for proscuitto. Meat candy!

    I have a rule of thumb for restaurants: always order the specialty. This goes for regions as well. When in Rome, eat as the Romans do. Don’t go to McDonald’s!

  5. Looks fabulous. But the pictures are making the Ash Wednesday tummy grumble.
    Didn’t St. Teresa put a glass of water out in her cell to feel her deprivation from water more acute?
    Enjoy your time there Father, even if it IS Lent.
