<i>Lardo colonnato</i>

Via Corsini, Rome, Nov. 6—


I THINK THAT'S WHAT you call it; we don't have an Italian food dictionary, and there's no internet in the apartment to check this. In any case it's sweet and delicious, and after having a bruschetta of lardo yesterday for lunch I thought why not repeat it today.
Ruggeri, the excellent cheese and salume shop at 1-2 Campo dei Fiori, sold me eight very thin (fino fino? Sì!) slices, thirty-five grams they amounted to, for eighty-five Euro cents, and half of them on a couple of slices of toast made a fine lunch, with a handful of dried prunes, dates, apricots, raisins, and sour cherries, also from the Campo.
