RE: LOVERA'S GROCERY
I am delighted that you folks are as pleased with Lovera/s as i am!!and i know that i was thrilled to find some of the best best italian around in a place that i NEVER would have expected ot to be, Seems that a large group of Italian miners were brought in to work some local quaries and stayed. I'm especially fond of Lovera's handmade cheeses and coil sausage which can bet bought either fresh or smoked. I had never seen italian sausage smoked before but then this IS Barbeque country! Its really good! The sausage is a northern italian style---not real sweet and very earthy and rich, and the cheese is made on the premises from whole raw milk in small batches the way it haws been done in europe for many centuries. This is no new ,hip, food craze place but a true family grocery and meat market that Sam Lovera grew up working in and now continues the family tradition. Thay also have a little convience store a block away that sells a killer muffalatta! Jane and Michael--if your ever in the Oklahoma area let know and i will take you to lunch---i know you'll like it. And thanks Tippy and Bushie--i KNOW Sam and Dominica appreciate it and work very hard to please thier customers!
