A bit of controversy here… or would it be about my philosophy?

I believe in tolerance and mutual respect. I hold that race, creed and nationality, though significant, are finally irrelevant as they always fail to define anyone. But people want to reduce others to labels, to tick the check-boxes and believe they know them: “where are you from?” they ask; “what’s your religion”?...

I am acutely aware that we live and work in the most populous Muslim country of the world. And yet, I make it a point to serve and retail D.O.P. salumeria from Italy, which means pork, as well as non-pork alternatives.

I mean no disrespect, just the opposite! It’s like my couple: East and West, Catholic and Muslim, living in harmony and mutual understanding.
