salame Piacentino DOP

Some History
Like the Coppa Piacentina and Pancetta Piacentina, the Salame Piacentino was often on the European royal tables at the beginning of the 18th century. In fact, due to the good public relations maintained by Cardinal Guido Alberoni of Piacenza, who supplied the French and Spanish aristocracy with salami from his native city, this cold cut was available at the court of King Philip V of Spain, among others.

Production Phases
The Salame Piacentino DOP is made with lean pork with the addition of 15% to 20% of pig fat.

Production and aging takes place in the plains and hillsides in the province of Piacenza, however never at altitudes above 900 meters (2,952 feet). The meat used comes from pigs grown in the regions of Lombardy and Emilia Romagna.

Salame Piacentino DOP

The lean meat and pork fat are first minced roughly, then seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, wine and sugar. The mixture is then filled into thoroughly cleaned pork gut and left to dry in temperature controlled rooms below 20°C. (68°F.), for at least 45 days. The minimum length of ageing depends on the size of each salami, whose final weight varies from 400 grams to one kilogram.

The Salame Piacentino DOP is cylindrical in shape, and the slice is bright red in color and the meat is flecked with small white dots of fat. The distinctive aroma is more or less intense according to the length of aging. The flavor is delicate and relatively sweet.

Rovagnati Mortadella with Pistachio 1 Pound Sliced

The name “mortadella” is traced back to Roman times. According to some sources, it derives from “Mortarium” (mortar), a tool used to crush the pork. The production of mortadella, however, can be located in an area of Roman influence, which extends from Emilia Romagna to Lazio. Mortadella is in fact the most famous cooked Bolognese tradition sausage, with historical origins dating back to the sixteenth century. In more recent times the area of the original production has spread to neighboring areas.

The habit of salting meat in the County of Carpegna is ancient, testified in the act of 1407. The Count of Urbino Guidantonio ordered that the market should take place in Monte Cerignone and prohibited from selling elsewhere oxen, sheep, castrated sheep, hogs and salted meat. A witness is in an elaborate part of St. Anthony Abbot, preserved in the parish of St. Leo Carpegna, where the saint is represented with a sweet ham to protect the production processes.
