Getting There

Moving isn't any fun. The process is nearly over, moving trucks picking up in Iowa City June 30 and dropping off in Decorah on July 1. In better, and more germane news, the pig (and it's chest freezer) got dropped off at the new house yesterday. Maybe when we get up there and settled I can share what little piggy happenings have gone down in the last couple months. The one I'm most happy with is the panghetta (ghetto + pancetta = panghetta.) More on that in a little while, just wanted to check in and show my face.

I also wanted to share a quote to live by from my favorite wine importer, Joe Dressner, talking about natural wine:

"Getting smashed, eating well, and laughing with good friends are key to our movement."




  1. Hey Kevin, it's Shawn Cornally, and I just wanted to thank you again for all of the charcuterie information. I have since purchased the book, some pork bellies, and a whole ham.

    The bacon and pancetta turned out famously, and I'm getting ready to hang my first prosciutto.

    Thanks, again!

  2. Awesome, Shawn! Can't wait to hear about your results.
