You’re going to have to excuse me while I wax poetic about Porchetta. If you’re not familiar with the MOTHER of all pork roasts let me introduce her to you. Skin-on pork belly from heritage pigs surrounds succulent pieces of sirloin and shoulder. All generously seasoned with garlic, sea salt, and rosemary. I’ll give you a minute to let that soak in. It’s a flavorful alternative to turkey, spiral-cut ham, or a standing rib roast (sorry Mom). You can eat it sizzling from the oven with crackling skin or serve it cold, deli-style for sandwiches like I’ve done above. Are you drooling yet? Because you should be. One taste and you will be. Trust.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Creminelli makes the most faboosh salumi I’ve ever eaten outside of Italy. No I’m not a spokesperson for Creminelli (although I very well could be) I’m just passionate about
pigs salumi! Cristiano Creminelli is a GENIUS and hopefully one day I’ll get to kiss both of his cheeks and tell him person. He made that glorious PORCHETTA pictured above. Want one? You’re in luck and can order one directly on their site. It’s perfect for any of your holiday festivities. If you purchase By Wed. Dec. 19th 2p.m. Eastern they guarantee delivery before Christmas!
Although you could easily slice this up with a carving knife, I used my Waring Pro Stainless Steel Electric Food Slicer which made quick work (and even slices) of the Porchetta. My husband is ridiculously excited about this appliance which hasn’t left our counter top since it’s arrived. What do we use it for besides slicing up this glorious Porchetta? For slicing SALUMI and cheese of course.
Want another great idea from Creminelli? They have created the CREMINELLI CLUB. Members get salumi that you can’t buy anywhere in stores. When they say exclusive they mean it. Club members get 4 shipments a year. Each shipment arrives with exclusive salamis and pairings like small batch cheese and preserves.
I happen to be a proud member of Creminelli’s Club and hope you will be too! PS Creminelli Club Memberships would make fantastic gifts for any salumi lover on your gift list. December’s Creminelli Club box includes:
