Top Ten Dishes 2011 #6: House-Cured Prosciutto at Taste

Posted By on Mon, Dec 26, 2011 at 9:00 AM

I'm counting down my ten favorite dishes from the restaurants that I reviewed in 2011. The top dish will be revealed on Tuesday, December 27, and look for a slideshow featuring most of the winners on Wednesday, December 28.

A one-off summer special that captures the essence of Gerard Craft and Adam Altnether's restaurant: two slices of toasted bread, each rubbed with garlic and the cut side of a tomato that soaks it in pulp and juice, and then topped with a gossamer slice of the prosciutto Altnether began curing from a prized Mangalista pig back in February of 2010. The prosciutto is salty, porcine perfection, like silk on the tongue, while the tomato's acidic bite adds a burst of summery brilliance.
