Talking to Norbert Wabnig at The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills about culatello
Cure your Monday blues with this news, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times: Per Italy's ANSA news agency, the U.S. Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is removing the ban on Italian cured meats. While many cured meats have been allowed in the U.S. since 1989, others are still illegal to import. What does this mean for lovers of salumi? As of May 28, you can purchase, sell and consume as much culatello as you want.
