Unique salami and air-dried meats

About the Curious

A Curious 'Harizo' Salami

What's so curious?

One thing about Curious salami - it's not like other salami.

I spend a lot of time hand-finishing the meat and adding just enough fat. As you can see, it is not loaded with unwanted bits that shouldn't be in there but still has loads of flavour. The salamis are softer than most salami too, as there is a person carefully looking after this food rather than machinery and chemicals. Don't get me wrong, I love the traditional stuff but this is different... curious, you might say.

The Curious 'Panch Phoron' Salami

  There are interesting things that go on when meat is fermented and cured in salami – this is why I am Curious. Also, the archaic, traditional meaning for the word ‘curious’ is ‘made with care’ or ‘made festidiously’… Curious Foods is about the quality; I take care with the sourcing and treatment of what goes into the food, as well as what it tastes like.

Are you Curious?

Curious Foods is about keeping alive the traditions of charcuterie and to create interesting food for interested people. Fermentation and curing,  ancient preservation techniques, generate some of the tastiest eating experiences (not just meat, but also think about olives, wine, coffee, chocolate…) so Curious Foods experiments with what can be done with producing charcuterie in small-batches, often with unique flavours.

 Any ideas for salami that could be Curious?  

Tweet @kyooreeuhsfoods (say it out load and it makes more sense)
or post on Facebook @curiousfoods
or the 'Contact' above and let's chat!

I'll do my best to make it happen... although I have to say, that everything has limits... and legalities kick in at some point...  I'll let you know if it's beyond the possible or any technical problems that I've learnt about but if it's a good enough idea and it goes into production, 

I'll name it after you.
