Salumi sandwich at home.

You don't have to be one of the lucky ones who actually live in Seattle to eat Armandino's beautiful charcuterie. No siree, you can now order Salumi online. One of my favorite salamis they make (or that anyone makes for that matter) is their Mole which is spiced with chocolate, cinnamon, ancho pepper, and chipotle peppers. It has an amazing deep and smoky flavor and complex spiciness.

I had some lovely focaccia from my pal the Gypsy Baker and a nice stack of Salumi's mole salami so I decided a sandwich needed to be made stat. I roasted a few mild Alvarez Farms red peppers and a few of their sweet red onions as well. I then grilled the inside of the bread with a little olive oil and a sprinkle of Utah Basin salt, made a smoky garlic aioli, and put them together. Grilled focaccia, garlic aioli, mole salami, roasted peppers and onions, garlic aioli, grilled focaccia. It doesn't get much better than that.

Hi Stephen - We now can buy this fabulous salumi right here in St. Louis at the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton. Yay!

I noticed that we might have crossed paths? I lived in Miami from 1989 - 1999, and have been here in St. Louis for the last 4 years.
