It’s no coincidence that “artisan” comes from artigiano – an Italian word that refers to the craft of hand making products, resulting in unique and individual qualities. Anyone can use a simple recipe. But like a master chef or winemaker, Columbus's master salumiere (an expert salame maker) brings the recipes to life using a little art, a little science and lots of passion and love.
Columbus uses 100% hand-trimmed pork from hogs that are raised to strict standards – fed 100% vegetarian diets, never ever given antibiotics or growth hormones and raised to the highest standards in reduced-stress environments. All of thier salumi is Gluten Free, has no MSG and 0% Trans Fats.
Often considered the king of Italian salame, Felino is traditionally made in the Parma region of Italy. Stuffed in a thick natural pork casing called culare, the fresh meat is then aged extremely slowly to achieve its legendary smooth texture and aroma.
