Loukanika, one of the rare Greek-style salami's being made in the United States is a rare treat. An absurd amount of cumin, orange zest and garlic make this Olympic Provisions most flavorful and unique salami. Olympic Provisions is home to Oregonís first USDA-approved salumeria, established in 2009. With two locations in beautiful Portland, Oregon, both locations of Olympic Provisions operate as European-style restaurants, bustling neighborhood delis, and onsite meat-curing facilities, where salumist and owner Elias Cairo carefully crafts "American Charcuterie" using the highest quality local ingredients.
Each salami type and flavor profile is true to the region or countryís style from which it originates (i.e. Saucisson díAlsace has the flavor profile of what you would find in the Alsace region). Starting with fresh Northwest pork, Cairo and his team hand-butcher the pork to 100% lean, then add back hand-cut fatback. This nearly extinct Old World technique results in charcuterie thatís as smooth and creamy as it is true in pure pork flavor. Garlic is freshly chopped and spices are ground daily in-house so that the flavors within the salumi are as vivid and pure as possible.
