What's in the Box?
The November box included four delicious offerings from Angel's Salumi of Carlsbad, CA
Nostrano (Salami w/ Black Peppercorn and Red Wine)
Toscano (Salami w/ Black Peppercorn, White Wine, and Fresh Garlic)
French Rosette (Salami w/ Clove, Nutmeg, Garlic, and White Wine)
Duck Breast Prosciutto
Most of the selections included this month were new-to-me, only the Nostrano was a style that I have tried in the past (in fact, it was one of my favorites in the April box.) I find that the flavor profile of Nostrano is very similar to Toscano which was also included this month. They're both mildly flavored, making them perfect to pair with a variety of things, but the Toscano receives a little flavor-boost from the fresh garlic, making it my favorite of the two. But the true stand-out among the salami in this box was the French Rosette—the flavor from the cloves and nutmeg really were out of this world, I've not tasted a salami quite like it before.
Full Disclosure: i'm absolutely nuts for anything made with cloves, I feel like they're really underutilized in cooking these days, so I was really excited to try this salami and may be a little biased, but as long as you don't loath cloves (and really, how could you?) then I think you'll enjoy this one.
Now as much as I enjoyed sampling the various salami offered this month I'll admit it was all a bit overshadowed by the fact that the box contained Duck Breast Prosciutto. I love duck, in all its many forms, so this is the one I was most excited to try. Let me just say that it didn't disappoint, it absolutely melts in your mouth. I put a small amount on our Fall Inspired Cheese Board (recipe at the end of this post), but I've held the bulk of it in reserve for a open-faced sandwich I've had in mind that's topped with a soft-set duck egg, layers of duck prosciutto, and who knows what else. I'm going to enjoy experimenting with this once I have some spare time. If I had to pick a favorite this month, the Duck Breast Prosciutto would be it.
Would I order this again? Absolutely! Carnivore Club is always a winner in our house, especially when we're hit with a case of the munchies, but I love having a selection of meats on hand to pull out when I need something to bring to a party (what little bit I have left will be following me to our first holiday party of the season in just a few days.)
