Welcome to the Ham & Cheese Co's recipe collection, brought to you by our good friend and London chef Peppe Cimmino. Born in Naples, Peppe arrived in South London via Liverpool in 2014. Since then we've watched the rise of his exciting pop-up at the Hill Station Café in Telegraph Hill. His Peppeckish kitchen focuses on authentic, regional Italian cuisine, at the heart of which you'll find many of our products and ingredients.

We'll be regularly featuring Peppe's favourite recipes, along with some of his first hand experiences of Neapolitan life. His dishes are simple, seasonal and authentic. Give them a try and if you've got the Peppeckish bug like we have, check out his website here for details of his pop-up and the food he's delivering around South London during lockdown.

Strozzapreti With Taleggio & Pancetta

Ham & Cheese Co recipe curator Peppe is back with a video created especially for us. Authentic, delicious and simple - what more could we ask for? This ancient grain pasta dish is ideal for when you're pushed for time or even for a Friday night treat. As usual you can find the key ingredients on our store. Buon appetito and if you give it a try, why not leave Peppe a message.

Pizza Chiena Napoletana

Peppe shares his Neapolitan Pizza Chiena, or filled pizza pie family recipe. A great way to use up leftovers and delicious as a starter or snack.

Cheese & Salumi Care

Our products are living products. Today, many salumi are ‘aged’ artificially in stainless-steel clad cold-rooms. Our salumi and cheese are aged naturally, drawing on the rich microbial life of unique environments during their slow, alchemical transformation so looking after them carefully at home is important.
