Tuscan Market: New Hampshire

Tuscan Market is an authentic and fantastic Italian Market in Salem New Hampshire that makes hands down some of the best breakfast I’ve ever had. For your consideration I will be briefly reviewing three of their (many) menu items: Orange Juice,  Prosciutto di Parma, and Ricotta Semolina Pancakes.

Orange Juice

Tuscan Market makes some of the best Orange Juice I have ever had; their OJ is freshly pressed to order and tastes like you are literally eating an orange. It is lite, thin, and has minimal pulp; absolutely fantastic stuff.

Prosciutto di Parma

With rich, thinly sliced and flavorful prosciutto that is both sweet and salty, this dish makes it off the charcuterie alone, add in the roasted tomatoes which, while not really  my thing, were still good, and you have yourself quite a nice breakfast appetizer.

Ricotta Semolina Pancakes

Do you like Pancakes? If so, you most certainly will like Tuscan Market’s version. Decked out with thick and freshly made whipped cream, thin delicious maple syrup and warmed sweet strawberries, these pancakes were fluffy and had the ricotta baked right in, which in and of itself provided a great texture change along with a nice sweet and cool filling.  Absolutely Divine.

As I mentioned before, this is some of the best breakfast I’ve ever had and I encourage everyone to try it; I know I will be back as soon as possible.

Massachusetts: Grazie: Dueling Meatballs

logo

Grazie is a wonderful Italian restaurant located in Four Oaks Country Club in Dracut Mass.; the food here is really good which is why this is the first of two reviews to come out of this location. This review is of the Dueling Meatballs, an appetizer that simply put, could be a main course if so desired.

The size of these meatballs is astounding, as both of them are roughly the size of a fist; they are so big that I was comfortable stopping after only one as I wanted to save room for my main course.

Resting in a bath of delicious sauce, these boulders of meat are unlike any I have ever had; the meat itself was thick, smooth, and moist, differing from the ground beef taste and consistency you usually get with a dish like this. The melted mozzarella cheese was delicious, and the generous dollop of ricotta on top was cold, smooth, and flavorful.

The combination of the sauce, meat, and two cheeses were such a welcome break from the norm, and will make you want meatballs like this every single time you see them on a menu.

If you are in Massachusetts, go to Grazie and order the Dueling Meatballs, you can’t go wrong if you do.
