Chefs DeAlejandro and Jon Newman recently hosted a Country Ham Curing class at Lick Skillet Farm. Each attendee learned to cure their own ham which will be aged at Lick Skillet for about 12 months before they will bring it home to serve to friends and family.
There’s so much to explore and do in Marseille that this is strictly the highlights. After visiting for the first time, we definitely want to go back. Almost every block has a great spot for a snack or meal, great gift ideas, and friendly owners. Whether you want an active vacation or leisurely beach stay, Marseille makes an excellent destintation.

A sure sign that summer is here are the roadside peach trucks and just in time for the season is the publication of The Peach Truck Cookbook.
