Speck Italiano Sliced
Salumi Italiani Speck is an Italian produced cured ham that is sliced fresh in the US. Speck typically made in South Tyrol, a province in northeast Italy known for its snow-capped Dolomite mountains and strong German-Austrian influence. The hams are cured and lightly smoked, resulting in a robust stronger flavor profile than its close cousin, prosciutto crudo. Speck tends to be browner in color with a much denser texture. The meat is well-marbled and has a savory, smoky taste that's laced with spices like juniper and bay leaf. On the nose, it gives off aromas reminiscent of the mountains. Speck is excellent served on its own as a savory snack or paired with cheese hard Italian cheeses like Piave DOP, which has light fruit flavors that contrast perfectly to the smokiness of the speck. In the kitchen, speck can be used in a variety of dishes. For an authentic South Tyrolean meal, you can use it to make canederli, bread dumplings typical of the Trentino Alto-Adige region. It also pairs well with red radicchio, eggs, and pasta dishes.
