Gifts for Foodies, part III

not obviously chocolate, but it's in there!Michelle and I had the good fortune to sample slices of Salumi’s Mole Salami this past weekend at the Slow Food chocolate event. The balance of spice, chocolate and sheer meatiness was surprisingly easy to get carried away with.

I don’t exactly consider myself a salami sort of girl, but this magic concoction awakend something in me. I think I’ve tasted a glimmer of understanding when it comes to Judah’s near obsession with ordering Spicy Italian’s from the sub shops (actually, I think its just an excuse for him to act out the perverse desire to order, out loud, Spicy Italians by the inch…). I’d next love to try this salami layered with roasted peppers, smoked mozzarella and basil in a sandwich or on pizza.

Salumi is located in Seattle, however with the magic of the internet and a credit card, you can order a variety of their meats from their website. Clicking through the Salumist Spotlight currently reveals a tasty highlight of Culatello education.

Who wouldn’t be overjoyed to receive meat by mail?

I sometimes dream about Salumi’s mole salami. Is that weird? The stuff is GOOD!

Curds and Whey here in Portland has started carrying it along with a lot of their other stuff. Only $15.75/lb which is better than other places in town carrying their stuff. I love it! I’m planning on sending some to a friend for Christmas — if I don’t eat it first.

Well said, McAuliflower! I’ve been dreaming of mole salami from salumi since that fateful day of chocolate tasting. It was soooo good!
