Antipasto and ah pasta

Iberico Jamon or  Pata Negra from Claudio’s on 9th. Just look at the richness of this black Iberian pig. Found primarily in western and southwestern Spain. These pigs roam on pastures of acorns, herbs and olives. Giving beautiful nuances of floral oak groves and lush flavors. 

Along with fresh marinated octopus, as well from Claudio’s.

Then my beautiful wife bangs out a Fusilli Lunghi al pomodoro. Perfection. We paired this fantastic dinner with a Cabernet from… Bulgaria. Oh man let us tell you… Dynamite!
