What Separates Angel’s Salumi From the Rest?

Salumi is the proper term for the process. Salami is the term for the individual end product or recipe.

Salumi and salami are beloved staples of Italian cuisine, each boasting unique attributes. Salumi encompasses a wide array of cured meats like prosciutto, coppa, and pancetta. Artisans such as Angel’s Salumi meticulously season and age these meats, highlighting the artistry of Italian charcuterie and offering a diverse range of flavors and textures.

Salami, on the other hand, specifically refers to a type of cured sausage within the salumi family. It features finely ground pork seasoned with garlic, pepper, and fennel seeds. Artisans encase the seasoned meat mixture in natural animal intestines, then ferment and age it. This process imparts a distinctive tangy flavor and firm texture to the salami, making it a popular choice for antipasto platters and sandwiches.

In essence, while salumi encompasses a broader range of cured meats, salami specifically denotes a type of cured sausage. Both are cherised for their rich flavors, versatility, and integral role in Italian culinary traditions, offering a delicious taste of Italy’s culinary heritage.
