Sweet Salami

Sweet Salami

[March, 2011] When we went to Mantova in Italy, we looked for a restaurant called Trattoria Due Cavallini which was in a restaurant guidebook.

This was one of those old Italian restaurants with a long history.

A small round middle aged waitress was moving around the tables briskly and efficiently.

I had mixed salami and ham as a starter as usual and then boiled tongue with Mostarda.

This Mostarda is a food which looks like some fruit preserved in sugar, but in fact tastes spicy and apparently often eaten in north Italy.

As for the dessert, I had this ‘Sweet Salami’ in the photo.

By the way, the speciality in Mantova is Sbriciolona, a kind of biscuit, which is very nice, too.
