Panettone

The folks from Vetri and the folks from La Colombe were have a panetone "throw down" this morning at La Colombe in Fishtown, so I guess they will be selling it (prob not Vetri though)

Need help for Christmas menu

I think you could do the mashed potatoes with the fish if you left skin on the fish and made it very crispy for contrast.
For the Eggs Benedict - do you have access to quail eggs or poulets? I would just "downsize" the dish - use biscuits or cut the english muffins down to size with a cookie cutter.
I agree with the recommendation for a roasted mushroom soup vs. cream.

Last year we went to Positano Coast...

Thank you all for your help - we ended up at Lo Spiedo which worked very well! Everyone had a great time, enjoyed their food and, it came out to just over $20 per person (no alcohol)

Should we be adding salt?

If you read the labels it is amazing how many foods have added sugars!

Should we be adding salt?

I think salt is fine when used correctly. I do not purchase canned/jarred/boxed food, or frozen entrees - way too much salt added. I buy fresh foods that I salt while cooking - because this is when the food will absorb the most salt flavor and you will not need to add as much to get the same results. I rarely add salt at table. I also experiment with different salts - for example I have a Maine Sea salt that is very salty.

Thank you - We don't have to be in that area - we are coming from Broad and Fairmount - but this looks like it would appeal to the group.

Trying to organize the office holiday lunch - last year we went to Positano Coast and it was a big hit. Any thoughts on a similar lunch spot (price, variety for limited eaters) for this year?

What makes the Philadelphia Italian Hoagie different from the rest?

The hoagie shop I worked in 30 some years ago in East Oak Lane had Oil, vinegar, oregano and S&P in a squirt bottle to dress the hoagies. Never a lot of vinegar - probably about 1:6 with the oil. But the question that was asked when taking the order was "Oil on that?"

What makes the Philadelphia Italian Hoagie different from the rest?

I like those as well, although hot pepper rings are more traditional in my experience - I think it varies some by Philadelphia Neighborhood.

Morton's vs. Diamond Crystal Kosher salt?

I tend to think that DC is the standard because it has been around longer

Where to buy a turkey in Philly?

You can order from Fair Food Farmstand in the reading terminal for local turkeys - free range, no hormones, etc and heritage breeds if you choose. That's where I have gotten mine for the last several years. You can also order from Godshalls - I get turkey breasts from them regularly.
