Salame is not a food I eat very often at all, but I was curious about trying Columbus salame. I was sure that their products were a higher quality than any I had ever eaten. To start with I don’t think I had ever eaten anything with truffles!
I was sent two dry salames that are part of their limited edition cacciatore which is only available in November and December. One was truffle and the other porcini mushroom flavor.
The bottom line is that I really enjoyed them. My immediate family was mixed on it and my picky eater wouldn’t even take a small bite. However, I knew that some of my extended family foodies would like it.
My family gathered Wednesday evening before Thanksgiving and as we sat around the kitchen snacking, I brought out these salames. I was right. The foodies liked them.
The verdict is that the mushroom has a much stronger, distinct mushroom flavor. But the truffle variety was really good also; it simply had a more subtle flavor. I , of course, couldn’t pair it with cheese, but others did. It was perfect holiday snacking food.
All Columbus Food’s salame is gluten free. You can find nutritional information on their web site.
