My latest quest is for someone who knows how to thinly slice prosciutto di parma... where oh where can I find it... in the South Charlotte/Ballantyne area? I don't particularly want to travel north of Hwy 51. I know, I know. Pasta and Provisions probably is the place. I've had it ONCE at Fresh Market... but every other time I've ordered it I've gotten it sliced like it was Virginia Baked Ham. There was one dude there, Nick, that got it right. I think Nick has moved on to bigger and better things.
So, help out a girl, y'all. I need the paper thin ribbons of salty goodness for crostini, charcuterie, etc. for a cocktail party I'm hosting FRIDAY!!!! Help!
P.S. If you have any recipes for antipasti that would be fun and easy and work w/ my rough draft menu below, please, by all means, share! Grazie. ;-)
-Sicillian Stuffed Mushrooms (Sausage mix)
-Brooklyn Cheese Puffs (Itallian version of Gougeres)
-Veggies, hummus, another dip
-Manchego & Membrillo crostini
-Assorted cheeses, salumi, crackers, chutneys, etc.
