Creminelli Fine Meats: Salami {GIVEAWAY}

{pictured above: Salame Musica}

Sono davvero emozionata! Have you ever tasted Italian Salame? REAL Italian Salame? I’m not talking about something you might run across at the mall, oh no, I’m talking about handcrafted artisan salame. Aka the good stuff, that up until last week I had NOT tasted outside of Italy. Yes, because of those pesky little custom laws I could NEVER bring any salame back with me {because let’s just say if you try they’ll confiscate it, just trust me, don’t ask me how I know…moving on LOL}. So you can imagine my level of giddyness when a brown box full of scrumptious salumi arrived on my door from Creminelli Fine Meats…I was salivating with anticipation before I even opened the butcher paper.

You see this was not just any salame this was salame made by Cristiano Creminelli. A master salumi maker. Yes MASTER. His family has been making Salame since the 1600’s in Northern Italy {bonus points there wink wink}. So it’s fair to say that he’s a MASTER. Fast forward a tad, and through a series of very fortunate events Cristiano decided to move to the states where he makes his family’s salame and sausages. Lucky for me and lucky for YOU!

From the moment you open the beautifully packaged salame you can see and smell that this is something extraordinary. And then, like a kid at Christmas you carefully peel the package back, your eyes shimmering like snow in the Italian Alps, and you slowly take in that first bite. You smile a coy smile, close your eyes as it touches your tongue and sends your taste buds into song {mine were singing like Andrea Bocelli and that doesn’t happen outside of the shower LOL} and you savor every single bite. *Exhaling loudly*

Swoon! Yes, it’s that GOOD. You can absolutely taste the love, quality and attention to every minute detail placed into these salumis. Edible art without a doubt.

I’m over the moon excited that I can now have authentic Italian salame without every having to leave the country and guess what…so can YOU!


*happy dance* Creminelli Fine Meats has generously offered to gift ONE of you lucky readers a set of their authentic Italian Salumi’s {4 in total} and if that wasn’t enough, they’re also throwing in the book “MEAT SALT TIME: Salumi Master Cristiano Creminelli

It’s fascinating. I couldn’t put it down, I found myself wanting to run off to visit Creminelli Fine Meats and learn all about salame making firsthand. A salame intern of sorts. Why not right, I love salame, I speak Italian, I’m pretty good at wrapping…who knows…fammi sapere Sig. Creminelli ; )
