A rather unusual butcher and his shop in Loro Piceno...

Now, where have I seen one of these before...??!!
Now, where have I seen one of these before...??!!

Our friend Eros, cheesemaker from Azienda Agricola Fontegranna, told us about Giuseppe dell'Orso from Loro Piceno, about 4 5minutes from us.  PeppeCotto (Cooked Pepper) is his nickname and his butcher shop is well worth a visit. Not only will you be entertained by PeppeCotto's theatrics, you can book in for a lesson on how to make sausages - from how the pig is butchered to the end product; enjoy an apperitivo of vino cotto with a slice of ciauscola on the side or have a four course dinner in the shop (limit 12 people). 

 

The thing that caught my eye was a very familiar poster "Australian Lamb Basic Cuts".  Seems Peppe had his honeymoon in Australia!
