the high line, late late autumn.

10 Dec 2010

The flora on the High Line is slowly fading into dull, wintery beiges, but that doesn’t mean that it’s still not a lovely way to spend part of a Saturday afternoon, especially after the white walled confines of Chelsea galleries.   I usually end my jaunts at the west 16th street stairwell, so that I can duck into Chelsea Market and get my monthly supply of guanciale and pasta from Buon Italia.  On my most recent trip, however, a quick peek in Dickson’s Farmstand Meats yielded this discovery:

Hiding behind the Lardo sign: unpackaged, freshly cured guanciale!  At prices comparable to Buon Italia!  This is a definite game-changer in my ongoing attempts to make a proper all’amatriciana sauce.   Will keep you posted.  In the meanwhile, have a great weekend.  Me, I’m going to indulge in a massive suckling pig feast at Back Forty tonight for Mike D’s birthday.  I can’t remember the last time I’ve been so excited for impending food coma.
