Number 34: Chorizo from Fatted Calf Charcuterie
Fatted Calf's Spanish-style chorizo is available in whole loops or in halves ($20/pound, around $15 for a whole loop). Make sure to buy extra if you are planning to cook with it -- inevitably, you'll find yourself snacking on thin slices, finally giving in to building a meal around a stack of sliced chorizo rounds.
Fatted Calf, 320 Fell (at Gough), 400-5614 and at 644 C First St. (at Oxbow Public Market), Napa, (707) 256-3684.
