Prosciutto

According to the President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez, pork is the other Viagra.  "I'd say it's a lot nicer to eat a bit of grilled pork than take Viagra", said she.  She also said that after eating barbequed pork “things went very well that weekend...”  My friend Monte, waxed poetic about the sexiness of anything pork from the meat itself to the notion of pigs wallowing and surrendering.

 

I use prosciutto in many recipes as an alternative to bacon. When you fry it, it takes on a taste similar to bacon, but lighter, has less fat and is not as smokey. And aphrodisiac or not, who can resist bacon. . .or its likeness?!
