Honor to Taste: July 2022

EVERYTHING BUT THE FIREWORKS

If the Fourth of July party is in your backyard this year, hit up our butcher shop to get your grill ready. And don’t forget to stock your cooler with some beer and wine from our market.

 

 

HISTORY OF FOOD: SÁNDWICHE DE MIGA

Sándwiches de miga are a popular party food in Argentina, similar to the Italian tramezzino or England’s cucumber sandwich. Some say they were introduced to Argentina by immigrants from northern Italy, but one Buenos Aires newspaper begs to differ. According to Clarín, local bakers at the Confitería Ideal first created sándwiches de miga in the early 1900s, using English-style bread to appeal to their regulars—British engineers. Whichever origin story is true, the important thing is that sándwiches de miga are here to stay.

 

 

THE GRANFATHER OF THEM ALL

Never one to make a fuss, Nonno Angelo liked to keep things simple. So we created an easy-drinking, hazy IPA, that’s as timeless and unforgettable as the great man himself. 

Now available at our markets!

 

 

MEAT OF THE MONTH

Here at Graziano’s, we love all our meats equally. But this month, we’re highlighting Bife Con Lomo, or Porterhouse Steak. To get the perfect medium-rare 1-inch porterhouse steak, throw it on the grill for 10-13 minutes and turn it over a minute before the halfway mark—a meat thermometer should read 130°F. For a 1.5-inch steak, 14-17 minutes should do it. After you take your porterhouse off the grill, cover it loosely with tin foil and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.

 

ARGENTINA’S INDEPENDENCE DAY

Sure, you might only get the day off work for the Fourth of July, but don’t let that stop you from celebrating Argentina’s Independence Day on July 9th. Argentina officially declared independence from Spain on this day in 1816.
