Carne Cruda

The prevalence of raw meat served through Piedmont is mind boggling when you consider the fear instilled in many Americans about their meat. Heck, they even go through the trouble of making sausages in the city of Bra that are designed to be eaten raw!

Carne Cruda is typically served either thinly sliced or finely chopped, in which case it's also known as Carne Batutta. The Piedmontese have a special breed of cow, tender and lean known as Fassona, and they make these dishes possible. Their delicate flavor and superb texture make Carne Cruda a delicious and refreshing antipasto. While Piedmontese cattle are raised in the US, I have yet to have found a piece that turns out Carne Cruda that matches what is found all over Piedmonte. You can raise the same cattle, but the climate, water, and feed all differ. It's the terroir baby!
