A Chefs take on: Prosciutto

Ossobuco, sweetbreads terrine wrapped in prosciutto, by Stefano Leone

When I mentionned we were covering Prosciutto di Parma this week, Stefano Leone so kindly sent me these pictures of one of his culinary creations with Prosciutto di Parma:

Ossobuco, sweetbread terrine wrapped in Prosciutto di Parma with orange sauce verrina, mostarda.

Stefano loves pairing this dish with a Gabriel Meffre, Cotes du Rhône AOC – Expression Pierres Brisées, 2006 France which is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault, a crimson robe with purple nuances, an enticing nose of fresh fruits and spices notes. Savory and elegant, finishing by a charming spicy sensation.

Comfort food – Soul satisfying
Cooking and music are alike, in that a finished dish and a performance depend on an element of improvisation which is never part of the recipe or score. When this goes right, the results are magical.

It is the magic that matter!

This is for you!”

Paolo cooking on a Wednesday evening with Prosciutto

At home, Paolo is the one that enjoys cooking the most. I am usually the designated assistant and assembler, and of course the eater!

This evening, Paolo and I made this very homey pasta dish with prosciutto di parma. Nothing too fancy, a nice feel good meal, but soooo tasty!

Since it is prosciutto week on the blog, I decided to snap some pics, and share the recipe with you.

Appetizer:

Prosciutto wrapped around hand rolled grissini’s on a bed of mixed greens and Dwarf Truffled Peaches.

Pasta: Fusilli with peas, cubed prosciutto “crudo” (raw) and Burrata.

  1. Fusilli were tossed in onions sauted in butter
  2. We added steamed peas, cubed Prosciutto and Burrata
  3. and served immediately!

Tips and Tricks on How To Pick & Store Prosciutto

Paolo slicing prosciutto

Here are some tips and tricks about prosciutto that I learn over the time and through my experience working with it over the years. I decided to share these with you, as before I came into the business, I would ask myself these questions everytime I find myself in front of a deli counter.

1. How to store prosciutto?

  • If the prosciutto is sliced, keep it in the coldest part of the fridge (usually in the bottom), make sure it’s well wrapped/air tight (preferably in plastic) so the edges do not dry.
  • For a full piece (not sliced) you can either refrigerate it in fridge or in the freezer. Always make sure the piece is well wrapped to avoid mould in fride or freezer burn.

On the launch of my Blog, the first product that I introduced was our key product: The Citterio Prosciutto. Kim Vallee sent me a message on twitter and let me know that she had by then only had one kind, of the five kinds of prosciutto that we are supplying and I quickly responded to her and offered her to have a Prosciutto tasting with us over a lunch at restaurant DNA in Montreal. With me I brought my husband and the President of our company Macchi Inc. Paolo Macchi and Kim were accompanied with the all so pleasant foodie friend of hers, Nathalie Rivard. As we all installed our selves at the table, there were 4 cameras and one video camera, one computer and 3 iphones covering our table and I was just thinking; “will there be any room for the plates?”

- Of course, there was :) !!!
