Want to get a taste? Read on to discover all the prosciutto happenings at Eataly L.A.!

THE KING OF ALL SALUMI: CULATELLO DI ZIBELLO

A rare salumi prized across Italy, Culatello di Zibello DOP is produced exclusively in the province of Parma near the foggy Po River Valley. What makes it the King of all Salumi? For starters, it's made entirely by hand, from start to finish. High-quality pork legs are deboned, then seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and sometimes white wine, then wrapped in a natural casing held together by twine. After that it's hung to dry and slowly age in cold, humid cellars, giving it a distinctive complex taste, sweet flavor, and funky edge.

Savor the delicate slices with rustic bread, crackers, soft cheese, squash blossoms, Parmigiano Reggiano, and Sauvignon-based or Lambrusco wines.

And guess what? From August 13 to 19, you can try it out at 50% off! Simply look for the prosciutto week stickers on eligible products, or head to our Salumi & Formaggi counter to ask our mongers about this unique salumi.

THE KING OF HAMS: PROSCIUTTO DI PARMA

Called the "King of Hams," Prosciutto di Parma dates back thousands of years to Roman times, when, in 100 BCE, Cato the “Censor” first mentioned the extraordinary taste of the air-cured ham made around the town of Parma, Italy. From there, this geographically protected food became world-renowned for its delicate, sweet flavor.

Excellent on its own, Prosciutto di Parma pairs well with rustic bread, juicy melon, and creamy mozzarella.

From August 20 to 30, receive a FREE housemade mozzarella when you buy two trays of select Prosciutto di Parma by Tanara Giancarlo. Then, on August 25 only, take home Prosciutto di Parma by Tanara Giancarlo at 30% off! Yes, prosciutto dreams to come true.
