 So in that video (don't speak Italian), is that still 8 finger cavatelli?
How come its not called 2 thumb cavatelli then?   I was thinking its because the noodles are about the length of 8 fingertips side by side.
Where does the "8 finger" come from in 8 finger cavatelli?
Its similar to fresh mozzarella then?
Is Queso Cremoso more similar to cream cheese or brie?       http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cremoso_cheese
It breaks down the meat to make it not as chewy and it also allows the marinade to penetrate into the meat.
Thanks, I'm doing something similar to #2, except for the marinade I did, beer, orange juice, garlic, Mexican oregano and onion.  (not sure if the beer was a good idea).  And I stabbed each piece about 50 times with a tenderizer.
Will acid break down collagen?
Is it possible to achieve a similar level of tenderness with out cooking it low and slow?
I thought it was pretty good, I wish they would have focused more on his second menú that he worked on for the food critic.  Its also a great movie if you want to learn Cuban slang.
