salame Felino

Salame di Felino owes its goodness to its secular tradition, which requires a medium-coarse grind grain from selected cuts of pork, spicy rigorously enough, and mature for a certain number of months.

In short, Salame di Felino salami is the oldest in use in the valleys of Parma, with the equilibrium ratio of lean meat and lard and with its unmistakable fragrance.

From the salami mixture to snack, Salame di Felino is one of the tasty pork dishes, popular with all ages.

Felino salami has its name after the homonymous municipality of Val Baganza that gave birth, and it is one of the most popular meats of Parma.

Produced, sometimes industrially and imitated, in many parts of Italy under the title ‘Felino salami,’ in these times has reached its official consecration.

It is now protected by European legislation with the seal PGI (Protected Geographical Indication). Only salami made in Felino can have the name Felino! No cheating on this name in the European Union member states!

This important achievement enriches, even more, its name recognition, bringing its deserved fame and location one of the most recognized and famous Italian sausage.

Some salami producers in the USA manufacture and sell Felino salamis made in San Francisco. While it is ridiculous to do so since there is no neighborhood there called Felino, the result is not a lousy salami, but it is very different though from the real stuff! While the real Felino salami is firm, the USA wannabe imitation is somehow tender, much larger, and has nothing to compare to the real thing.

Be careful, when shopping for Felino salami, not to fall prey to this trap: they are just trying to take advantage of the name recognition of the Felino Brand.

Real Felino salami is imported in the USA by Veroni USA, and sold online by Alma Gourmet
