Cotechino is one of the most typical food from Northern Italy and, together with the Zampone, is one of the protagonist of the finest winter meals. Deriving its name from the Italian word for pork rind, "cotica", this meat is carefully degreased and then enriched with salt and spiaces. Cotechino is usually served with lentils, according to the tradition of the region. The choice of the meat and a careful curing of the product allow Cotechino to fully acquire and express its delicate flavor, yet exquisite.
COOKING TIPS: Put the Cotechino in a pan with cold water after having pierced some holes in it with a toothpick. Bring the water to a boil and cook over low heat for 2 or more hours.
