One of the (many) reasons I love being back in London is the easy access to yummy pork products from all over Europe. Saturday morning, Emilia and I went to Borough Market (which, in and of itself, is a more than adequate reason to love being back in London) and picked up some nduia – a spicy-hot salami-like loaf of flavor comprised of finely minced pork, lard, liver and lungs packed into a skin of intestines and jacked up with super hot peppers.

This treat, from the southern Italian region of Calabria, is a bit like a really hot version of chorizo but with a mushy texture.

Nduia is traditionally known as an aphrodisiac and, as is the case with so many southern Italian foods, its name is allegedly derived from a naughty reference to its restorative powers.
