Iowa gives us one more reason to love it
La Quercia prosciutto. Perhaps you've heard of it. Well, the Norwalk, Iowa-based artisan meat curers have made it to Minnesota. Specifically, to Broder's. Broder's is a La Quercia "subscriber," which means it has committed to a whole pig. The South Minneapolis pasta bar will host a luncheon featuring said acorn-fed porcine beast on April 19. Act fast!
La Quercia has been hailed near and far, from the New York Times to the Los Angeles Times, from Bon Appetit to The Local Beet. The shop pays keen attention to its sources. Its acorn-fed pork and meat for its prosciutto comes from Becker Lane Organic Farm in the Eastern Iowa town of Dyersville (home of the Field of Dreams).
