SALAMI - What do you like? What producers?

#1 Post by Thomas Keim » March 7th, 2019, 11:32 am

Greetings everyone -

Doing a little research on different Salami producers in the United States, and was wondering who and what do you like?

I love Salumi in Seattle, but who else are you a fan of? What Salami do you prefer from your favorite producer?

Much thanks in Advance -

I'm a sucker for Salumi, so happy to see it on your list. Another favorite locally is Olympia Provisions ( https://www.olympiaprovisions.com ), located in Portland and worth a visit to their restaurants if you're in town.

My wife is a huge salami fan.

She says Fra’ Mani and Olli Salumeria really know how to swing the meat. Firm, but moist and creamy texture. The aroma wafts of the shaft off the salami as the casing is slowly, so slowly removed.

Olli has a ‘cooler’ taste, Fra’ Mani is too stiff at refrigerator temperature and needs some time to warm up. Then, pop it in your mouth and let your tongue soften the fat so it coats the meat right there in your mouth.

You’ll keep asking for more, telling your server, “Yeah, that’s the stuff! Keep it coming.”

She says you should try both at the same time.

Some of the line is Spoofy, but makes a good variety for a party...

The “wine infused” line is fun to eat while drinking the corresponding wine. Stunt salami, so to speak.

Thanks everyone! - We do a Charcuterie plate at our brewery, and I am looking for different salami producers to put in rotation -

Awesome suggestions -

Hi Thomas - check out what Tony Incontro is doing at Incontro cured. His Mangalitsa pork and wagyu beef salume (The Gladiator) is dynamite and everything else I have had is really good. https://incontrocured.com/products.

He's just getting started but I think maybe products available via mail?

Best,
Cameron

Fatted Calf caters the Ridge events. They are always good.

I've ordered a variety of stuff from https://www.olympiaprovisions.com/ and it is really good.

I know this isn't salami but have you tried this? It is amazing. It's a meat spread you can put on bread or crackers (although there are plenty of recipes you can use it in also). I usually put it out with cheese and crackers when I am hosting something and it gets devoured! https://laquercia.us/cuts_specialties_Nduja_Americana

Thank you for that!

I bookmarked the site, waiting for his online store!

The Gin and Juice salami from Smoking Goose is one of our faves. Mole salami from Salumi is pretty wonderful too.

It must take quite a few moles to make a salami.

Seconding Creminelli. Delicious stuff and a range from more traditional versions to a few more out there things. If you want to go full Utah, pair it with Beehive Cheese.

Columbus Crespone is great

I usually buy it at Murray’s.

Awesome you guys - I am going to look into every single one of them - thanks!

One we are having great success with is a selection of salami from UNDERGROUND MEATS of Madison Wisconsin - their Acht Worscht German styled salami is just terrific -
