Is Speck Alto Adige just smoked prosciutto? Because it looks a lot like it.
Ah, thanks for the name. I checked and yes, apparently that's how it's called in english.
Here we just use the word Speck, because "smoked prosciutto", which should be literally "prosciutto affumicato" is a completely different kind of food. I guess that in US you don't have enough product variety to have the need to come up with specific names (seriously, here there are like... dozens variations of everything in the span of a few kilometres).
This is prosciutto affumicato and this is speck
That looks really really good, but might give me a heart attack xD
It's a pretty typical and "light" "mountain dish". You can trow away the coking cream and it will be much lighter and use Oil instead of butter to cook it so to decrease animal fat.
What you need to try is Pappardelle with Boar sauce.... truly amazing and that will actually gave you and heart attack AND cancer
