DRY – CURED PRODUCTS –
Dry-cured meats are a staple in Italy. Traditional products come in a range of flavours like smokey, sweet, or spicey. Some meats have a delicate taste while others pack a serious punch. There is a type of dry-cured meat for all occasions and taste buds. If you’re not sure what to try, we’d be happy to suggest some for you.
Our dry-cured meats can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Eat them in their purest form with cheese and crackers, fresh calabrese bread, or give your homemade pizza a gourmet touch. Prepare an exquisite antipasto for your guests by simply adding cheeses, sott’olio and olives, which can also be found at Sapori Italiani.

ABOUT US —
Founder and proprietor Luigi Manica, his wife Maria, and their children emigrated from the city of Crotone (Calabria), Italy in November 1994. Luigi, with a passion for cured meats since childhood, quickly recognized the need for authentic Italian specialties. Curing meats was a family tradition back home in Italy, and he wanted to share this delicious tradition in his new community. In June 1998 he opened the doors to his new venture, Sapori Italiani.
