Trotteria Al Pompiere

We knew that THE place to try local salumi e formaggi was Al Pompiere, so we decided to do some tasting during our last lunch in Verona. We were NOT disappointed. There are cured meat chefs and cheese chefs that come to your table to explain what everything is, and they are very proud of the meats that are cured in-house. We ordered
a sample plate of each.

We enjoyed the two different procsiutti, crudo, and guanciale!

Next came the cheeses. the cheeses came from cow, goat, sheep and horse milk. They ranged from fresh to very sharp and some wonderful gorgonzola. They were served with red onion preserves, spicy pear mostarda, and honey.

Horse milk? Who knew! What a great adventure that must have been.

That looks so yummy, especially the cheeses! If I can have cheese, I am a happy camper!

LisaF:

This looks like such a good time! The guys are kind of cute, too.

jgk:

you're really killin' me now.
That's really my favorite kind of lunch in Italy. Or dinner. Or snack.

Anna:

Maybe you understood wrong, because doesn't exist "horse milk"... Maybe it was CACIOCAVALLO, but this cheese is made with cow milk. I assure this to you.
