#1: Raw pork pate?? Author: Lafaso870, Posted: Fri Dec 17, 2010 7:26 am ---- I have been given a jar of what appears to be raw pork fat, mixed with garlic, chilli and other spices. I can’t remember what its called but it is a local delicacy, to be eaten spread on bruschetta.
It is delicious – if I switch off the part of my brain that is screaming RAW PORK FAT!
Does anyone know what it’s called? Has anyone else tried it? And is it really raw?
