Celebrating salo

This has been around awhile, but it's worth viewing again, if just for the music. It's about one of my favourite foods, salo ... It's basically very silly, but the music is great.

Oh yes, I love Mykhailo Poplavsky, a man who freely admits that he has no voice, that he is no singer, although most his (carefully and professionally edited) concert numbers are hugely popular in the Ukrainian-speaking and thinking part of Ukraine. His "salo" (fatback) number is one of the best. This here video clip a stylized version of a scene from Nikolai Gogol's "Christmas Eve".

Webster's defines backfast as
Chiefly South Midland and Southern U.S. the fat and fat meat from the upper part of a side of pork, usually cured by salt.

Sorry, I meant "fatback"

You'll find reference to fatback in an upcoming Ukrainian Food Flair segment ... along with a recipe for "cool kovbasa" shamelessly stolen from a commenter who shared it on this blog. He does get the credit for it, tho. ;-)
