Salume Beddu uses new world Heritage Pork and old world techniques to craft their salume. Salame Cittá means “city” in Italian. There is a category of Italian salamis that are named simply after the region or city they come from (e.g. feline, Lucchese, etc). These salame are generally seasoned very little, relying instead on the unique qualities of the pork to give them their distinction. In that tradition, Salume Beddu offers Cittá. It is Salume Beddu’s simplest salame to date: pork, black pepper, wine, and garlic. We think it’s delicious and allows the high quality of the heritage pork to take center stage.
Crafting what Forbes Magazine calls “The Best Salami in the Country,” Salume Beddu has put an American spin on traditional European-style cured meats and fresh sausages, mixing the highest quality Heritage Midwestern pork with centuries-old European techniques. Founder and head salumiere Mark Sanfilippo cut his teeth working with Nancy Silverton at Pizzeria Mozza before returning to his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, to open Salume Beddu in 2007. Each salami is hand crafted with care and slow-cured to produce traditional tastes with a New World twist. While it may take longer (Mark’s fond of saying “people make babies faster than we make soppressata”), it’s very clear that the juice is worth the squeeze.

Instructions / Storage
Salami, much like cheese, is a living product. Once taken out of its packaging it will continue to age and become drier and harder, the flavors more intense. After opening, it is best to preserve the remainder in plastic wrap in your refrigerator.Download Storage and Prep Instructions
