Marzipan, Prosciutto in St. Louis?

Arantzain Dec 11, 2006 04:17 AM

Gah! I traveled to Sicily over the summer and developed a terrible fondness for marzipan and prosciutto. (Not simultaneously, I promise.)

I haven't seen any of either since July, however, and I'm starting to get a bit wild eyed.

Does anyone happen to know of confectioneries or food-import stores that might carry either of these products?

Thank you!

    Bissingers has little fruit-shaped marzipan.

      The company Volpi makes a passable prosciutto - domestic, of course - and they are located on the Hill, of course. And if you need to get hold of imported prosciutto, or any grocery product, you must go to Viviano's on the Hill.

      Viviano has a website, and I'm sure Volpi does too.

        You can get imported prosciutto [de Parma] [as well as Serrano ham] at the Wine Merchant in Clayton.
