I was wondering if any of you knowledgeable folks could help me out. I posted in the Manhattan board because I figured that the headiest foodies probably post and lurk here.
I am looking for the names and contact info for the best domestic artisan salumerias in the country. Italian cures, french cures would be the most interesting though the pig seems to be loved by many countries so I would be interested in any cured meats period. I am also trying to find out where the best cheeses are made, domestically of course.
I HAVE found a few, but no where NEAR as many as I could in order to be fairly certain I am not missing out on a hidden gem.
This is for a commercial endeavor. I believe I have perfected a few items, these I will do in house. But, I don't have an ego large enough to think that I can do eveything I need in house. This is an art that takes years, years of experiementing and learning from masters. Therefore, I NEED to find such individuals.
So, numbers, names, emails, websites...ANYTHING that would provide me with much needed information. I truly appreciate ANY info you can provide.
Thank you and I am looking forward to hearing from you.
(PS. I hope I am not breaking any rules here, if so, my apologies.)
