Traditional water buffalo salami, mild but full of rustic character and a rich, deep meaty flavour. This gourmet charcuterie combines aromatic buffalo meat with pork pancetta, freshly ground pepper and garlic, creating a moreish combination that is hard to put down. Each artisanal salami is made from prime cuts in small batches and smoked over fragrant beech-wood for an unforgettable experience.
Water buffalo meat is naturally low in cholesterol and has higher Omega 3 content than beef and pork, making it the perfect choice for a health-conscious diet.
Delicious on its own, in sandwiches, as a pizza topping or sliced into risottos and pasta sauces. It makes the perfect center-piece for charcuterie boards, going especially well with hard cheese including Cheddar, Parmesan or Gouda.
Received 1* at the 2021 Great Taste Award.
Comments from the Great Taste judges:
"A dark salami with an inviting aroma and rustic texture. It has an enjoyable meatiness and a very good level of spicing. Sweet and creamy fat complements the salty pancetta adding further layers of flavour. The well-judged level of smokiness adds a complexity and a further dimension of flavour. The environment of the buffalo is clearly showcased in the deliciously natural flavours of this salami."
