Faiccos or Espositos for Pork????

JoanNYC Nov 29, 2011 09:55 AM

I am planning a dinner which consists of sausages, pork ribs, chop, etc etc etc. Usually buy what's local but want to make sure this is somewhat special. I am torn between Espositos or Faiccos. Both are equal in travel time. Just need some opinions. THanks

    Indeed, prosciutto bread is AKA lard bread. Parisi's is among the very best!

      I've never been to Parisi's. Years ago a friend of mine would bring it to me from Brooklyn

      You really can't go wrong, flip a coin, both are fabulous...that said, I have a sentimental attachment to Faicco. To complement your pork theme why not pick up a Parisi prosciutto round loaf if you do end up at Faicco!

        You must mean "lard bread". Haven't had that in years. Thanx for the reply
