What is Salumeria Biellese?
In 1925, two recent immigrants from the Biella region of Italy opened a salumeria in New York City’s Lower West Side. Using the artisan techniques of their ancestors, they began providing delicious Italian meats in the city and beyond, and their family-run operation continues nearly 100 years later. The salumeria is committed to keeping the old-world production process alive in all of their charcuterie meats, and their artisan methods have not gone unnoticed. In 2010 they were awarded a Slow Food NYC prize for their authenticity, quality and sustainability. Salumeria Biellese has also received acclaim in The New York Times, Zagat, Bon Appetit, and New York Magazine.
