They look so good!! :) What do you mean with raw ham by the way?

Prosciutto crudo. Ho trovato la traduzione su e mi son fidata. Per sicurezza ho cercato anche sull'Oxford e ho trovato dry-cured ham, Parma ham, quindi vado a modificare :)

Dopo qualche anno di confusione ho imparato che la traduzione è molto più semplice di come inglese il prosciutto cotto si chiama ham, mentre quello crudo si chiama proprio "prosciutto" :D
Quindi vai tranquilla, lo chiamano così anche loro! ;)
