Making my own salami with a group of mates is so very satisfying. Even more satisfying is the first taste test and thankfully I can say that this years 2011 vintage batch is the best yet. These salami’s are amazing. Fresh, moist, with the perfect amount of chilli and the flavours just linger in your mouth. I couldn’t be more proud.
And the perfect match for such a perfect Italian salami? #realperoni of course!!
For those not from Australia, we have been subjected to having to drink Nastro Azzurro that is actually not from Italy. The Australian brewed Nastro (labelled Peroni here) tastes nothing like it should. I have been very passionate about this and have taken a stand which has had a great effect in educating people on the differences (as it is hard to spot the difference if you do not know what to look for) between beers brewed in their country of origin compared to those brewed under licence in Australia. I have actively sought and imported #realitalian beer in Australia and whilst financially it is not the smartest decisions one could make, I am proud of the fact that if I want to drink Nastro (or Moretti, Messina, etc) then it should actually be from Italy.
