When I grew up I well remember that there was always a salami hidden somewhere in the fridge. Sometimes you would have to look really hard, it was so often buried under packets of cheese and other meats. The fridge was always so ridiculously full you could never find anything if you were in a hurry. That’s an Italian mamma for you 🙂
If I was hungry I would just slice it and make myself a panino which would certainly satisfy my cravings and fill any holes in my stomach.
There is something about cured meats that make you want more. I don’t normally have them all the time but usually on occasions because it is a real treat.
I received a box of cured meats from the “Carnivore Club”. I liked its funky fake wood design.
Carnivore Club started out in Canada and the USA and it is the world’s first monthly delivery service of artisan charcuterie. Every month there are different types of cured meats, usually 4 or 6 types of handcrafted charcuteries from Britain’s best artisans.
Inside mine there was: pancetta, moma, air dried ham, salami and Spanish Chorizo.
I put everything on a wooden board and started slicing..
I am not over exagerating if I say that I was dribbling. There is something about freshly sliced salami.. the smell and everything that can overpower your tastebuds..in a nice way I mean!
I liked the pancetta, I particularly like it on pasta dishes and lomo, whole pork loin dry cured with fresh herbs and spices and then rubbed with smoked paprika was new to me.
My children promply wrapped the ham around breadsticks like they always do.
What happened next was whilst I briefly went upstairs my children polished off the lot! So I just managed to try a slice of everything but thankfully there is still some salami and chorizo left which I have not sliced yet.
