  • I'm curious if you heated up the ribs, and if so, how you did it. Also, did you have any sauce to go along with that?

  • I am curious about the headchease - I thought it is only eaten here in Europe. Btw - my mom makes great boiled fillet in aspice. It is made with spices and tiny lil pieces of onion, apple vinegar and secret stuff she wont tell me about. Tastes great with fried potatoes and a green salad

  • Tina and I eat headcheese on a semi-regular basis. It's available at our local chain grocery store (but not at Whole Foods) so other people are eating it too. We used to enjoy it our in California as well. Most charcuterie or salumi shops or counters will carry it. So far, the head cheese produced by Boar's Head is our favorite due to it's even flavor (nothing sticks out - Dai Due was very rich with a heavy, heavy pork undertone; Boccalone's headcheese was a bit too lemony, etc.). Occasionally, I do meet people who are a bit grossed out that I order headcheese, but more deli workers know it's great tasting.
