blackwood, that's down by philly, right?
i'm in north jersey, the exact opposite end , in bergen county. lived my whole life in nyc and nj, within a few miles of the gw bridge.
except for a month i spent in wisconsin one night. (lol, actually, it was 6 months.)
carpaccio is awesome. i like mine with some shaved locatelli and a little lemon, cracked pepper, and grassy olive oil, over a bitter green.
and a red.
hey, i just recommended it to a friend and fellow dc'er, vickiq, but have you tried bresaola. it's beef that's cured like prosciutto. not cooked. ask around for it, it's so good.
next week i'll be in one of your necks of the woods, amish country, for a little r&r and gluttony.
