This is a great recipe based on one served at the Axe Mill tavern in East Douglas, Massachusetts as presented in the R.S.V.P. section of Bon Appetit's December 1996 magazine. I tried this at home, unfortunately, not yet at the restaurant! We do keep moving closer to it as I made it when I lived in California, and now I'm in Maine. Special note in the article: "Tasso, a spiced smoked Creole ham, and capocollo, a cured Italian sausage, are available at specialty foods stores."
