BEST BUYS & BOOKS
Prosciutto and Grana Padano: Jewels in the Italian Gastronomic Crown. Ham and cheese, being the traditional staples of the most pedestrian of all sandwiches, may seem like humble products. But as Carole Kotkin discovers on a recent trip to Northern Italy, they are specialties ranking among the greatest glories of Italian cuisine. The craft that goes into the best of them is every bit as exacting as the expertise that goes into winemaking. Grana Padano cheese and San Danielle prosciutto are two of the most remarkable jewels in the Italian gastronomic crown.
