Hey Pac NW Chowhounds, Salumi will be featured on Mario's new show tonight on the Food Network at 10:30. The gang at Salumi is anxious for their 15 minutes of fame. It should be fun to see our local treasure featured.
Given that Texas is a big meat state, it's not surprising that the local, sustainable trend is catching on. At the center of the local butchery scene is Jesse Griffiths, chef/co-owner of Dai Due. We also check out Salt & Time's cured pig parts just outside Austin, and then cruise up north to the Noble Pig sandwich shop, where the owners flip a duck inside out, cure it, and make a damn good pastrami sandwich.
