I discovered this little gourmet deli near my house in Rome -- ok, all delis are essentially gourmet in Italy, but this is like extra gourmet with truffled anchovies and gold speckled mozzarella and stuff. The owner was...enthusiastic. Ten minutes in that tiny store and he'd used the word "fantastic" and its synonyms 50 times. The tuna's superb, the parmesan's extraordinary, the salami's marvelous. Everything in the store is just fab. Just fantastic. What an obnoxious little man. But anyway, I felt awkward not buying anything at the end (I'm just the perfect customer) and so out of all the fantastic products, I decided to try some champagne gorgonzola.
It was pretty good. But I don't even know why I opted for that because gorgonzola's not even one of my favorite cheeses. I was under pressure. It was good and I really enjoyed it with bread this morning, but then I decided to make a pasta out of it.
