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 ; )

EDITED TO ADD: Thank you so much for your entries. Contest has ended. Winner announced HERE

  1. 1

    salami piccante for me please 🙂

  2. 2

    I’d love to try Salami Tartufo

  3. 3

    LOVE Salumi tartufo!!! Wow!!! This looks amazing!!

  4. 4

    I am most interested in trying the White Truffle Salami!

  5. 5

    For me, it’s got to be either the pesto sausage or the white truffle salami! Yummy!

    Paula: so you totally reminded me of my husbands’ obsession for salame…and I have to tell a story. When I first was dating my husband-to-be (he’s American), the first time he came to meet my family in Italy he also fell in love with…salame (ok, so he was already in love with me). One morning my mom found him eating pane-e-salame for breakfast (!) and it was a story to tell the whole famiglia. So that was not the end of it! On the way back home, he packed a bag full of salame to bring back to the US. Well, the dog at the airport went crazy sniffing his bag and he was brought into a room and all his salame was taken away from him, poor baby (of course you know the TSA people ate it all, it was the best quality). So now I would totally make him (and myself) happy to win some of this delizia!!! Che bonta’. Gia’ sento l’odore. The way I like it is on toasted ciabatta with a layer of burro salato. That’s it. Perfetto!!!

    You are right – it is hard to decide. My husband would love all of them. He is the ultimate carnivore, even owns a t-shirt that says “There are no two finer words in the English language than encased meats”.
    If I had to pick one it would be the Salami Casalingo.

    I’m already a huge fan of Creminelli and “liked” them on FB long ago, which I hope will count as another entry. I had some of the tartufo last week and love it just as much as my other favorite, the casalingo. I’ve also had the soppresata and barolo. I’m curious about the musica and the Americano and would also love to the wild boar. I’ve tried a lot of artisan salamis over the last couple of years and Creminelli is by far my favorite purveyor.

  80. 82

    SALAMI TARTUFO for me, Bella Ninja. I miss the tartufo bianco di Piemonte sooooo intensely, I imagine one bite will transport me back… xo, salty ninja

  81. 83

    I would love to try all of them, but the Salami Piccante sounds right up my alley!!! YUM!!!

    Done! I am the world’s biggest salami lover! Nothing better than salami, crusty warm bread and a nice hunk of cheese for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. : ) These look so wonderful I can almost taste them and could never pick just one. Therefore, I’m going to have to hope for the mixed sampler. Thank you for introducing me to this wonderful company!

    Did you say Tartufo? Many moons ago when we went to Italy, I ordered anything that had Tartufo in its name or description. Haven’t been able to go back. Would love to live vicariously by taking bites of that salami!

    The choice was a tough one! I’m a huge fan of salami, any salami, but I have to say the Wild Boar Salami sounds magical. I mean, wine-soaked cloves and juniper berries along with Texas wild boar and Duroc pork belly? This sounds heavenly.
    After checking out their website, I desperately want to win! As a graduate student I don’t exactly have money to throw around on expensive food.

    I have returned from the Creminelli website… In the words of you “Swoon!” It was so hard to choose just one phenomenal salami that I would want to try most. They all sound SO amazing. However, I decided on Salami Sopressata. I love bold, robust flavors and I love love love garlic so this one sounds right up my alley!
