Classic New Orleans Muffuletta Sandwich

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt 9 comments

The classic New Orleans sandwich combines a homemade olive salad with layers of thin-sliced Italian cold cuts. The secret is to let it rest before eating so the olive juices get absorbed into the bread. More

A Sandwich a Day: Italian Hero from Ken's Artisan Bakery in Portland, Oregon

A Sandwich a Day Laurie Wolf 8 comments

Ken's Artisan in NW Portland is reputed as the go-to place for what many consider to be the best bread in Portland. The other Ken's, across the river, is a pizza restaurant and equally stellar. For the westsiders who want to stay in their neighborhood, Ken's Artisan Bakery does pizza every Monday night, and it rocks. Actually, you can't go wrong with anything they bake or make. Largely due to the bread, along with fresh, seasonal ingredients, any sandwich listed on the daily changing blackboard menu is going to be excellent. More

A Sandwich a Day: The Godmother at Bay Cities Italian Deli in Santa Monica, CA

A Sandwich a Day Farley Elliott 11 comments

In Los Angeles, the prevailing sentiment seems to be that the sandwich has gone the way of our beloved La Brea Tar Pit mammoths. But the "Godmother" sandwich from Bay Cities Italian Deli in Santa Monica is a testament to old-world sandwiches still being done right, as the perpetual line in front of the deli counter can attest. Genoa salami, prosciutto, mortadella, coppacola, ham and provolone cheese are all thinly layered inside a crusty length of Italian bread. Be sure to give it "the works." More

A Sandwich a Day: Italian Sub from the White House Sub Shop in Atlantic City, NJ

A Sandwich a Day Hawk Krall 23 comments

As a fan of South Philly hoagies—the kind piled high with sharp provolone, roasted long-hots and piles of thinly shaved, imported Italian sopresetta and mortadella—I'm always cautious when I see the word "sub." But the glimmering retro neon signs outside the White House Sub Shop in Atlantic City, New Jersey, drew me in, and their Italian Sub is an awesome change of pace. More

The Italians know how to do fast food. If ever you find yourself cruising down an Italian autostrada or stuck in an airport, rather than settling for a sub-par hamburger, chances are you can find a deli-style counter where you... More

Rising Hipster Trend: Obscure Deli Meats

Erin Zimmer 17 comments

[Photograph: Robyn Lee] John Houder of The Gainesville Sun recently predicted up-and-coming hipster fads, and cold cuts made the list. Apparently the counterculture has come full circle and wheat gluten is too mainstream but mechanically sliced meats are back! The classic “weird” meats like liverwurst and head cheese still fall under the umbrella of “establishment food," so hipsters will have to improvise with creations like zebra hoagies or capybara wraps. Combining animals will provide for even more individuality and, as is the case with ham radios and mopeds, will require searching for specialized and customizable gear that can be used to impress others. Hipsters will spend their time discussing the relative merits of different cuts of puma while grinding... More

Salumeria Rosi: One Man's Pleasure in Feeding People

New York Ed Levine 8 comments

Salumeria Rosi is a proper home for Cesare Casella's outsized Italian food personality, with its pristine display case full of hams, cheeses, and vegetables, shelves of handpicked imported Italian food, and a more than reasonably priced menu of small plates served in a small storefront dining room.

Amazing Charcuterie Floor

Adam Kuban 6 comments

Belgian artist Wim Delvoye has created a tile floor made from cold cuts—sort of. I'm going to let you soak in the sight above for a bit ... And then tell you that it's a trompe l'oeil salami floor. The mosaic is made up of C prints. Still pretty arresting, no? [via Yumsugars]... More
