... 1/4 so we could each try a little bite. The meat was cooked in pork fat, so since Tom is allergic, he opted out. (how convenient!) It actually wasn't that bad, kind of tasted like Steak Ums. Salvatore also took us to a popular place for the younger crowd and we got a typical after dinner drink. It was a mix of marsala wine and some other wine.

This was the first class where we didn't make fresh pasta. Instead of topping it with cheese, the pasta was topped with toasted bread crumbs.

... Salvatore Provenzano, brother of the most (in)famous Bernando. When he was arrested, the house got seized and given to the anti-mafia movement of Corleone. Now, Salvatore Provenzano is out of jail, and he lives very close to his old house.
