San Daniele ham with roquefort cream

Dried pork meats usually combine well with sweet flavours due to their saltiness (like ham with melon). In this recipe, I add another classic strong ingredient: blue cheese. A wonderful marriage of flavours that makes a perfect starter for your meals or a small bite for cocktail parties. I use […]
