I was hanging around the shop, just to absorb the energy and excitement that exudes from Dario and the people that come in and shop or take foto's.
While I was there, Dario made two porchetta rolls, broke down two racks of beef and got a pot of Peposa ready to cook for 12 hours in the oven.

A large group came down from having lunch up at Dario DOC, the burger place upstairs open for lunch during the week.They were so excited about watching Dario break down the racks of beef, you could tell they were foodies. At first I couldn't tell where they were from as it sounded like sometimes they were speaking English but sometimes another strange tongue.
Turns out they came from South Africa and had found the Macelleria thanks to my blog!
Tommaso had read about Dario in Bill Buford's book HEAT and then went searching online and found my blog and my site.
We figured this out when I went to pass on my Chianti dining guide to one of the guys. Small world!

I adore magic moments!! It can happen anywhere and any time-- always be ready to party!
