Ham processing: handmade
Ingredients: local pork, spices, allergens are not excluded.
The raw ham of the Butcher’s and Salumi D’Andrea is already distinguished by the aroma that naturally emanates. A light smell of saltiness emanates from the thin slices of ham that are skillfully cut, or from the cubes that are used in the kitchen for various preparations. The aromatic taste of fat, essential to make it soft and tasty, reminds of fresh butter.
The taste of this ham with selected local meat, then km 0, is the perfect example of balance between flavor and sweetness. A mix that makes this food suitable for all seasons and appreciated even by the most demanding palates.
The D’Andrea artisan prosciutto has a savory flavor at the beginning which then becomes a sweet aftertaste. This double effect is synonymous with great quality. The ham is a full title among the typical products of Lucania, land of woods and spring waters.
Ham in the kitchen
The D’Andrea raw ham is suitable for many culinary recipes of various kinds but the best way to enjoy it remains in its naturalness, perhaps accompanied by a slice of homemade bread with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
The right wine enhances the taste
Delicate and rich in nuances between sweet and savory, the artisan prosciutto can be combined with different types of wine: white, red, rosé or sometimes slightly effervescent.
Among the wines chosen for a perfect match are the Colli Orientali of Friuli origin, the Chardonnay of Alto Adige or the Collio Pinot Grigio.
The artisan ham can be served during a buffet, an aperitif or as a moment of refreshment between friends or colleagues, in these cases we recommend a Franciacorta or an Oltrepò Pavese Brut that create an excellent contrast with the taste tending to the butchery Salami D’Andrea.
How it is prepared
The method of preparing artisanal ham dates back to ancient times. The tradition that still follows today allows us to obtain a unique and inimitable product, with the certainty of offering our customers the quality and genuineness for which the Butcher’s and Salumi D’Andrea is known.
The ham is presented with a compact flesh of red color not too bright and a fat part that makes the taste of the ham delicate.
