Excellent. And now back to the discussion of Reuben Pie. Have you made it yet? (Regrettably it's not kosher, which is a shame because corned beef and swiss were made for each other!)

No but I will make it. I happen to have rye flour as I like baking my own bread. I also wonder how it would be
with a top crust and Russian/thousand island (Reuben sandwich spread) on it instead of the topping. Don't cook
the spread put it on afterwards.

So I'm in Ogden, UT for the week, and my hotel adjoins an Irish pub serving all manner of delicious traditional fare. I may not actually eat anywhere else this week; there are a lot of things to try.

Sounds like my usual MO when I travel on business. Once I find a good place to eat I just keep going there.

I went to an Irish pub in Syracuse, there are several. This one was featured on the Food Network's Dinner's
Dine-ins and Dives, at least I think this is the show Guy was the host. We tried one of Ruben appetizers Guy
recommended, it was good nothing fantastic and I have seen it elsewhere. The entree was salty... not just
salty.... SALTY. I had a corned beef sandwich, I forget what the others had. It wasn't anything great, very
disappointed.

I think I mentioned the appetizer in an above post. It was corned beef, sauerkraut and cheese rolled into a
ball, breaded and deep friend. Not bad.

Many years ago I had occasion to dine at the Empress of China - in San Francisco's Chinatown.

This had been exceptionally highly rated by every travel guide I checked, and every dining guide online and elsewhere.

The view out the windows of their sixth (I think) floor dining room was astounding.

The room was impeccably decorated and the "stuff" on the table was immaculate and just as it should be.

The wait staff was properly attentive; the food arrived promptly yet properly "paced."

There was just one problem.

The food was only slightly above ordinary. It was good; it tasted fine; but it was definitely ***not*** the "Le Bec Fin of Chinese Dining" that I had been led to expect by the reviews.

Oh - it was very very expensive for what it was.

So I wanted top pick up some corned beef for the corned beef pie. It is hard to find it unless it is March.

Then when you do find it you are shocked by the price. I am not making the corned beef pie.

We have it in the store here year 'round.

I thought they did here also. The flat cut was $5.55 a pound. The point cut which is cheaper, better tasting
but a lot more fat.

If you think it is difficult to find corned beef in a store other than in March, just try to find capacuolo (what we 'talians call "gabagool!") anywhere in California! What they sometimes try to pass off as capacuolo is this horrible stuff they call "capicola" - not at all even close!

There are a few places - few and far from here - that sell the real stuff, ebven a very few that sell the *imported* real stuff.

I guess it's time to start calling local Sons of Italy lodges and organizing some protests against these racist pigs!

Zoo,  Any Kosher butcher will have corned beef year 'round....but Kosher also translates by definition as "tasty but expensive".

Most grocery stores in central Indiana don't even know what cappicola/capacuolo is.

That's because real Italians live (or have lived) within 50 miles of the Bronx (which explains the identical radius of availability of Real Pizza).

Real Italians are from New York. Not from Indiana, not from Italy, and *definitely* not from Chicago.

Not quite, IG.
Almost, but not quite.

Yes, Real Italians are from New York. No argument.
Real Italians are also from Philadelphia.

I don't know, it's awfully close ... Philadelphia is 106.1 miles from the Bronx, but only 102.4 miles from Delaware.

It was always my impression that if anywhere in New York were to define "Italian" it would be Brooklyn.
