Ever wonder how prosciutto and salami are made in Italy? Or why no one in Italy ever gets ticketed for speeding? Or how lard (even really, really good lard) tastes? (Maybe not.)
Check out this reading Eric Dregni, author of Never Trust a Thin Cook and Other Lessons from Italy’s Culinary Capital, gave recently in Minneapolis. You can listen to the entire reading at once (19 minutes) or click on separate clips, ranging from 1-3 minutes, of sections that appear in Eric’s book, including Eat Your Hat, Cowboy; Arrangiati! and La Ferrari.
