A Special Salumi

Rosmarino at DeLaurenti's

Like many Seattleites, we’ve developed an affinity for Salumi Artisan Cured Meats. We patiently waited with bated breath for them to receive their USDA certification. The moment that happened in 2005 we could barely contain our excitement and built a seasonal around their Finocchiona salami.

Consequently, we have been looking for an excuse to feature more of their products. We are overjoyed to announce that we are starting Salumi specials that will spotlight a rotating Salumi product throughout the year. It is similar to our seasonal offerings, but will be available for a longer period of time. We have started with a favorite, the Salame Picante, which features their rosmarino salami.

You don’t hear much about their rosmarino salami. That’s because back in 2007 DeLaurenti’s Pat McCarthy contacted Armandino Batali asking Salumi to develop an exclusive DeLaurenti product. They batted around a couple of ideas, and then Pat hit upon the thought of a rosemary salami. Armandino found a fresh rosemary source that he liked from Vashon Island. The rest, as they say, is history. Pat is extremely proud to say that DeLaurenti remains the only place where you can buy Salumi’s Rosmarino salami. You can’t even buy it at Salumi. The only exception is on our Salame Picante. It will be available through the spring, or until we run out of it!

We are still working out what will be featured next. Early indicators point towards Salumi’s mole salami. We’ll keep you posted!
