Welcome to Cagli & Distinti Salumi hosted by SlowFood!
We headed to Cagli last weekend, only a 20 minute drive from our Agriturismo, for the annual Distinti Salumi, the National Review of Salume (Salt Pork), the most famous meeting of Taste dedicated to the national handicraft of cured pork meats of quality.
We sampled the day away!
Guests/good friends staying with us from Washington State - Patti & Ben (along with
her sisters family) joined us for the afternoon for the pork fest.
We sipped local wine (not for sale, just for friends), ate tons of pork fat & even saved room for a little gelatti! Jason enjoyed the museum of antique meat slicers, grinders & scales!
There were "workshops of taste," a "courtyard of salt" and a "square in feast!"
Next year mark your calendar for your chance to taste many artisan meats, choose your favorite salumi from all of Italy in this little town of Cagli!
