(If this deserves a thread of its own, please
godsmods, do the needful.)
Is there a place in town where a sampling is available?
(Yes, I have looked at the obvious – Formaggio K – and rejected their limited offering.)
I’m in NYC right now, sufficiently south of Cambridge that I have, as we speak, in front of me Benton’s (salty), Finch (sweeter, but stringier), Newsom’s (a little salty+funky on the aftertaste) , Broadbent (dry and very salty on the aftertaste), Johnston (softer, most “ham” like).
Could I similarly indulge back “home”?
(Although, for a wanderer, such as myself, home may simply be where the ham is.)
It’s not an idle question. We have an international crew coming for Thanksgiving (Korea, China, France, Italy, Russia/Israel, India) and are anxious, trumpeteer-like, to prove we have not only the best words, but the best ham.
