Bliss on Bread: Lardo di Colonnata, Tuscany with Carol Faenzi

Join Carol Faenzi for a trip up into the mountain quarries of Carrara, but not just for the white marble.  Carrara's second most important export is "lardo di Colonnata".  And, NO, it's not lard. It is an exquisite delicacy that began as the staple sustenance for quarrymen going back to the time of Roman slaves.  This "Slow Food" has become one of their Ark of Taste's choices to protect, due to its uniqueness and cultural heritage.  Carol recently returned from a trip to the ancient mountain village of Colonnata and will share her photos, stories....as well as a lunch featuring this beautiful food.Author Carol Faenzi returns to Bella Fortuna to share her knowledge and her love of Tuscany, home of her ancestors.
