Hello and Goodbye

We're just about ready to leave for Sonoma, so I probably won't be posting until Monday or Tuesday. I will hopefully have some beautiful photos of our menu to show. Below I've reposted the only video I have of an actual Passport appetizer. We've served this one several times and it's a great bite to pair with red wine. Keep it in mind the next time you are entertaining.

This version uses cream cheese, but we've done it using Teleme, and Crescenza (you'll have to Google them unless you are a real cheese head). Anyway, keep an eye on the blog while I'm gone. Enjoy!

The following video was originally included in a post entitled: "Calabrese Lollipops – Antipasto on a stick!"

If i have read this right ur video is that of a passover appetizer?
if i read it wrong i apologize, but if it is indeed : there are some problems one being mixing the cheese with the meat and the second having it rolled around a breadstick as u mention....

Soppresata, paper-thin sliced, is my absolute favorite on sanwiches - it combines nicely with fresh high-moisture mozzarela and sweet basil + ripe meaty tomatoes. (One has to go easy on cream cheese or it will drown in the taste - I actually like it better with just few drops of olive oil and a pinch of salt.)

BTW the way, the post name Calabrese Lollipops РAntipasto on a stick! reminds me a lot of Jeff Dunham, and Jos̩ Jalepeno.. great fun..

They look like a Chef John version of "goat peckers" (commonly seen at church potlucks, etc.).

Could I use Quark in exchange for the cheese? It is a little bit more tart.
