I ate prosciutto e melone in Rome...it was spectacularly good.

I love those three expressions Simona!


I love the expressions, too. Also love prosciutto. I should have taken more advantage of my stay in Parma and eaten more of their prosciutto. ;-)



Man, do I want some prosciutto now! Why did you do this to me? ;) The torta al testo looks so delicious; I had never heard of it before this.

And I adore the expressions, especially the one about quenching one's thirst! Thank you, once again, for a wonderfully interesting post.

Lori Lynn

It might just make me thirstier, but I still want to quench my thirst with that delicious prosciutto!

The expressions are charming. I wish I spoke Italian so I could use them!


Hi Lucy, indeed, the simple combination can be spectacular, if the ingredients are of good quality.

With prosciutto and parmigiano, Parma is really a city to love, dear Paz.

Thanks, Lisa. Torta al testo is very regional. It is also known with a few other names in the same area. I love it. I must learn to make it.

I know, Lori Lynn, the expression looks different from the perspective of people craving delicious prosciutto.


I love proscuitto wrapped around my chicken breasts...cooked or not:D

Thank you for the link, Simona! I just tasted speck for the first time last winter when we went to Mozza in LA. It was on a pizza, and it was delicious. As for prosciutto with figs, ah heaven.


Sounds good, valli.

Glad you liked it, Susan. Heaven, just as you say.
