Re: tradition

Tony, I can relate to Dago red!  I grew up in Kenosha, Wisc which was
settled by Germans,  and Italians from Calabria and Romano. My first job was
at the Italian deli/wine store. The older men were precious - they all had
their own home brew.
I buy Carlo Rossi Paisano and its not even close.  I remember Dago red- it
definitely smacked your tongue around! Now that I live in Charlottesville,
Va, it is a whole new world.  So few Italians!  I talk about cappocolo and
they look at me with a blank stare. It is much, much different.  Pizza is
for the most part chain stores, not ma and pa. No good crust. Ok, now I am
homesick despite all the snow up there.  :^(
-Peg in Va.  (I dont eat meat anymore but I make an exception for a really
good prosciutto di Parma..  mea culpa)
