The quote on my blog header is from the master of meat, the butcher of Panzano, the king of all things carnal. He’s Dario Cecchini, and he has his own blog here.
In August of 2006 we traveled to Tuscany specifically to meet (or ‘meat’?) him. It was one of the great experiences of my life. If you have not yet read Bill Buford’s book HEAT, then check it out. More on our meal at Dario’s new restaurant in the next post.
