Why I love Italy, Reason #356

This is Bresaola. Bresaola is an Italian specialty of thinly sliced, cured meat (beef). It is usually served topped with shaved grana padano or parmeggiano cheese, rucola, and olive oil. The meat is so thin and delicious that it almost melts in your mouth. It's usually served as an antipasto (appetizer). Bresaola has become my favorite Italian dish.

Haven't tried that yet.

But my favorites from Italy are Tuscan ham and any Italian Salumi. My other big favorite is Pain de Ardenne (from the south of Belgium).

Dutch meats here are quite raw, am not into it unfortunately. I would rather have their cheese
