Sourdough bread made with white flour is wonderful when it is freshly baked and the crust is crisp. Day-old bread can still be used and find a key place in a real umami celebration. Anchovies, grilled onions, sourdough bread, pata negra ham, and mushrooms
If you cannot obtain pata negra ham, use the best air-dried ham you can purchase, preferably with a little fat still on it.
