Salumi Products Gone Downhill?

extramsg | Aug 1, 2006 05:54 PM

Here in Portland it was great for a while. You could find Salumi's stuff at several local gourmet grocers, cheese shops, and the like, after a local distributor picked it up. And the products were wonderful, just as good as what I'd had at the Seattle store.


Salumi got picked up by Sur La Table and I've also heard, perhaps Zingerman's??? Now, not only is it difficult to find in Portland, but people who were selling it are telling me they won't buy it anymore because the quality went so far downhill. One guy described the salami as more like summer sausage. And he said they went through a batch where they had terrible casings. I've had people both privately and publicly confirm this now. See here for one of those:

Partially, I want to warn locals that the Salumi brand isn't what it used to be, but I'm also wondering if those in Seattle are experiencing the same.
