Salame di Mugnano*

Salame di Mugnano is a traditional Italian cured meat that originates from the Campania region. It is specifically produced in the towns of Mugnano del Cardinale, Sarno, and Siano. This salami is made from high-quality pork meat, which is seasoned with salt, pepper, and other spices, and then left to cure for several months. The result is a flavorful and aromatic salami that is a staple in the cuisine of Campania.

One popular recipe that features Salame di Mugnano is the “Pizza Napoletana,” which is a traditional Neapolitan pizza topped with slices of the salami. Another delicious way to enjoy this cured meat is in a simple antipasto platter, paired with a variety of cheeses, olives, and crusty bread.

Salame di Mugnano has been recognized with the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) by the European Union, which ensures that the salami is produced according to specific traditional methods and in the designated geographical area. This recognition highlights the unique and authentic qualities of this traditional Italian delicacy.
