Video: A Porchetta Is Born

The trickle was slow, but it had an impact. I received a call, then an email, then advice from coworkers. They all had the same message: Try Costello's Market.

Last week, Bite Club TV videographer Elizabeth Rossano and I finally drove to Middlebury to taste the market's famous porchetta sandwich. Watch as chef and co-owner John Hamilton prepares the traditional Italian pork roast from scratch and serves it on homemade bread.

Just be warned: You will get hungry.

Then, tomorrow, grab the paper and read my full story about this hidden gem of a deli.

Ah Costellos!

These guys never cease to amaze me with original dishes: just now the mushroom risotto is to die for; their soups are wonderful and their fish and chips would make any Brit proud. In the summer watch out for the blueberry coleslaw and do not forget their salmon and Caesar Salad. John is a genius and Carolyn is a joy.

Lucky Middlebury.
