A Few of our Favorite Things

Posted November 11, 2013

We hate to say it so soon after Halloween, but have you finalized your holiday plans?  It looks as if our holidays will be pretty busy.  There are a lot of folks talking about our products.  Maybe you heard.

Arguably one of the most powerful voices in media, and certainly the most powerful woman, is none other than Oprah Winfrey.  She made a bit of a name for herself by giving away gifts on her shows.

“You get a car!  And you get a car!  And you get a car!”

Winfrey is a woman of definite opinions and tastes, and an endorsement from her goes a long way.  A tradition that she has kept alive is her ongoing list of “Oprah’s Favorite Things.”  Guess who made the 2013 List?  That’s right:  Your favorite Salumeria.

She said, “Even Gayle (her long-time best friend and confidante) who claims not to like sausage (and we’ll forgive her for that) approves of this sublime slow-cured salami (she can call it what she wants).”

For her list, she chose our Organic and Tartufo Salami set.  It contains one each of Organic Hot Chorizo, Organic Molisana, Organic Norcino, and the truffle-infused Tartufo.

When we got the news it sort of stirred things up around here, and certainly around town as well, as our local news crew immediately dispatched a team to have a look around and see what the fuss was about.  They, of course, left fans.

Jill Homiak of USA Love List was also thinking of the holidays.  Her site features Made in the USA products, and for their Gifts for Wine Lovers list, she chose our salumi.  Her family is from Parma, Italy, and she knows what a true Italian cured meat should taste like.  On her blog, she offered a great recipe for Prosciutto Breakfast Biscuits that uses our product.

It can be tough to come prepared for your annual family gathering.  One would like to change things up, but your 7-Layer bean dip is so easy.  You know that Aunt Dorothy is going to make a pumpkin pie, and Cousin Ed is always good for a fine bottle of Beaujolais.  Why not spice things up this year with some artisan cheese and some cured meat?  Perhaps pick a brand that seems to be sweeping the nation?  Like Olli Salumeria?  Just Saying.olli-salumeria-a-few-of-our-favorite-things-cured-meats

“You get some Olli!  You get some Olli!  And you get some Olli!”
