Mauro and Chiara Casetta, Piedmont. Salami, Guanciale and Prosciutto Cotto

Ferrere, Asti.
Piedmont takes its food and wine very seriously, being the home of the white truffle and also some of the most famous red wines in Italy. Brother and sister Mauro and Chiara Casetta use both in their fabulous range of salami. Sitting at the foot of the Alps, the climate of Piedmont can be cool and damp so the tradition is for small or cooked salami rather than large, cured muscle cuts 
At their small production kitchen near Asti Mauro and Chiara do everything; there is a small abattoir where they slaughter on average 10 pigs a week, kitchens, curing rooms and a small shop. The pigs live in the fields that surround these buildings and they use plants to filter the waste. Mauro and Chiara are working towards carbon neutrality through ground source heat pumps and energy recapture.
