Attilio’s sauces prove that
the butcher knows best.
Calabria, the region of Italy that sits at the toe of Italy’s mainland more than holds its own when it comes to Italian cuisine and it’s contributions are many. But when it comes to salami the word ‘Calabrese’ is a household name in many homes in Melbourne and Australia and of course across the world.
The one ingredient that truly distinguishes a Calabrese salami from other styles is the famous capsicum sauce. Now with the majority of Italian migrants to Australia hailing from Calabria it’s no surprise that many of the salami entered into the Melbourne Salami Festa contains this special ingredient.
Now if you don’t have the good fortune of having Calabrese relations or neighbours who make their own home made capsicum sauce then the recent launch of an Australian owned range of home-style capsicum sauces might just be the secret ingredient you need to making a perfect Calabrese salami.
Attilio’s Sauces & Marinades have created a range of sauces using 100% Australian capsicums and produced in Victoria to a traditional recipe that goes back over two generations of experienced and passionate butchers. Through years of refining traditional recipes, tried and tested amongst family, friends and customers Attilio’s have truly captured the authentic flavours of home made capsicum sauce.
Capsicum sauce comes in two varieties, sweet and hot and sometimes both are used in Calabrese style salami recipes. The hot sauce gives a spicy kick to the salami while the sweetness provides a subtle counter balance to the salty cured pork meat. Attilio’s sauces are the best way to get that authentic Calabrese style flavour to your home made salami or sausages without having to do it yourself.
