I've often thought that I could live on beef tartare and cured meats alone. But the true testament to my obsession is that I still think that after trying 20 of the country's most highly rated salumi. In one sitting.
I can't think of another snack that nails the triple C (classic, comforting, classy) trifecta as perfectly. They're total crowd-pleasers that don't require any prep more than dumping 'em into pretty bowls for serving.
