"Cured meats are a true representation of the cultural background of a society; they are the voice of the people, and have been over hundreds of years. Italy was mostly an agricultural country only a hundred years ago. Most families would have kept a pig and used every part of it. What wasn't eaten fresh would be cured to feed the family for the next year. In every larder there would have been hams and salami hanging from hooks in the ceiling, each representing the taste, produce and microclimate - the real rural roots - of a particular community." - Giorgio Locatelli

On Friday 23rd December we will have a large tasting of the many different kinds of Salumi handcrafted by Italians from around Australia as well as Prosciutto di Parma. Come in store between from 11am onwards and find out what is your favourite Salumi.
