Salumi...traditional Italian salami, sausages, prosciutto...has been produced by Salumeria Biellese on the west side of Manhattan since it was founded by Ugo Buzzio, of Piemonte, Italy, in 1925. Today, Ugo's son, Marc Buzzio, and his partners, Paul Valetutti and Fouad Alsharif, sons-in-law of Ugo's countryman and partner, Piero Florio, continue the tradition, with the third generation in the wings. Slow Food NYC Snail of Approval winning Salumeria Biellese produces nearly 100 artisanal cured meats and fresh and dried sausages, the old fashioned way, using traditional recipes and meat from sustainably and humanely raised livestock with no added BHA, BHT, lactic acid, sodium erythorbate, coloring...Paul says the products taste better that way.
Join Slow Food NYC for a unique buffet tasting of salumi and a talk by the owners about their products and techniques and the challenges of making salumi with integrity, the old fashioned way.
Ticket prices include the salumi buffet. Wine will be available at an open cash bar.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the programs and activities of Slow Food NYC, including Urban Harvest, Slow Food NYC's program of good food education for NYC kids.
