Volpi Artisan Salami

Publication: St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Cookbook author and TV personality Michael Chiarello calls Giovanni Volpi & Co.- better known around these parts as Volpi’s (5250 Daggett Avenue on the Hill)-the best domestic artisan salami producer. And he’s put his money where his mouth is, producing a line of artisan salami with Volpi under the brand Napa Style.

You can get those, plus Volpi’s own private label artisan styles, at the store on the Hill. They’re powerfully flavored, but they’re also salami the way it ought to be.
