FAQ's

We get asked loads of questions about The Salted Pig Salumeria as our business is unique, we do not cater, instead with showcase our salumi with 'cure-ated' centrepieces of food. Here's a list of questions we are often asked.... 

 

What is Salumi? Salumi is the Italian word for all salted and cured meats. You’ll only ever see traditional and free-range salumi in what we do that’s made by hand, not machine, the way Italians intended it to be. We are hands-on with our salumiere who stay true to tradition and handpick only the best ingredients. Guanciale, Coppa, Spalla, Lardo, Lonza, Pancetta, Prosciutto, Salami...are known as 'The Big Eight'.

What is a salumeria? (Sah-loo-meh-ree-ah) Like a delicatessen, it’s a shop that specialises in salumi Salumi (sah-loo-me) Italian for all salted, cured meats. Watch this space for our shop in Sydney coming soon.

What is a purveyor? It has many meanings beginning with someone who sells a particular type of goods; a person or group who promotes a way of life, an idea, a view… We are not about just selling ‘a product’ we want you taste traditional food that tastes trace back to a time when food was celebrated and central to life, when it would take a whole day to make your passata, months to cure meat, years to preserve cheeses, when family and friends made and ate food together, when you knew your butchers name and he would know his farmer’s name…We want to keep these traditions alive, even if used in new ways!

What is a grazing table? All our food is about grazing, to pair your favourite foods and even better, pair with new foods you have never tasted together. For our own occasions we ‘cure-ate’ a grazing station with enough food for our guests to eat as a antipasti, main meal and dessert in one. Other clients love our table as an antipasti-style so their guests can casually graze accompanied with an apertivo style of drinks, or even with their own main meal. Grazing tables are so versatile and relaxed, living on the coast and this casual way eating, is all about gathering around a centerpiece of food, sitting or standing, and eating as much, or as little of what you want.
