INSIDER Idea

Volpi be Jamón

People in america touring to Spain might have encountered Jamón Serrano (or its much more pricey cousin, Jamón Ibérico). St. Louis-owned Volpi has declared a domestic edition, accessible in pre-sliced, 3-ounce packages at its retail shop on the Hill (5258 Daggett) and at choose retailers quickly. Aged for a minimum amount of 12 months and with a further shade of pink and nuttier, gamier flavor than its prosciutto counterpart, Volpi’s Jamón Serrano pairs properly with Marcona almonds and Manchego cheese. In contrast, Volpi’s prosciutto has a lighter, soften-in-your-mouth texture and earthy flavor. When put together with Parmigiano-Reggiano and fresh new melon, it generates the ultimate salty and sweet mix. Both are excellent centerpieces for a pre-prandial charcuterie board. 


MICRORANT

Being Mum About Sector Pricing

We’ve ranted in advance of about irrespective of whether a server ought to condition the selling prices of off-menu specials, and the identical logic should implement to sector pricing. Although we have no beef with getting a menu product or two mentioned as “Market Rate,” when the item in question drifts a lot more than a handful of dollars earlier mentioned regular rates, then the bigger price tag must be element of the server’s spiel. (In these days of larger menu charges, it is a ought to.) In 1 recent instance, the industry price tag of a unique steak entrée was north of $100 (and it didn’t make a difference that the price tag took place to be reasonable, considering the cost of the uncooked products). No matter, sticker shock ensued when the examine was dropped, and rightfully so.
