Salumi
Not to be confused with salami, salumi is the Italian term that is becoming more and more popular in American restaurants and kitchens. It refers to all Italian pork deli meat products: salt-cured meats, salami, salsiccia, prosciutto, bresaola, ham, prosciutto, mortadella, etc. In Italy a salumeria is a shop where salumi are sold.

What a coincidence--I had a huge Italian lunch at Salumi today. (Mario Batali's dad, Armandino, and his sister, Gina run this place.) One of the pre-lunch snacks was this entire leg of serrano on the table that you slice off with a knife--a gift from Mario. ********** www.cacheseattle.com
