COLUMBUS® Italian Dry Salami has made San Francisco—its city of birth—the salame capital of the U.S. We’ve been making ours since 1917, when our founders adapted a recipe for Milano style Salame. We use only select cuts of pork, cracked black pepper, our signature blend of spices, and burgundy wine—giving it a unique richness and aroma, and a nice bite from the slow curing. Aged 21 to 33 days depending on size.
Tanara Prosciutto di Parma D.O.P. at any age is produced under strict Italian law which governs the size of the hog leg to be used and what the hogs eat, among other strict considerations. Once the perfect leg has been selected, it undergoes a sea salting stage that last for a few weeks. The actual curing process occurs in humidity and temperature controlled rooms which replicate the fall, winter and spring seasons. An added bonus is the pure breeze from the Apennine mountains that blows into the curing house windows, thus adding an a unique form of air terroir to the ham. The entire process is time-consuming and tedious, but Tanara’s end product always measures up to the highest standards so that it earns the Parma fire-branded crown stamp with honors. The 24-month version sets itself apart with its bold black label.
