  • About


The Zampino or stuffed shank of pork is a speciality product of the Italian pork butchers. It is cooked in the same way as ham, taking care first to prick it well all over with a trussing needle then to wrap it in a piece of clean cloth and tie up. This prevents the skin splitting whilst cooking. When served hot it can be accompanied with a Tomato or Madeira Sauce, or with a garnish of sauerkraut, boiled, braised or gratinated cabbage, French beans, purée of peas, mashed potatoes etc.
