For Those Who Know…
People don’t often eat pork skins any more, but back in the days when famine was always lurking nothing was allowed to go to waste. And as is often the case with so-called lesser meats, the ingenuity people used in preparing them led to very tasty dishes. Cotechinata are pigskin braciola, a specialty from Basilicata: true peasant food of a sort that one doesn’t encounter often nowadays…

except at Leon’s Restaurant! LOL!
