Capicola, also know as Coppa or Capocollo is similar to the more widely-know cured prosciutto, as they are both pork-derived cold-cuts and are used in similar dishes. Made from pork shoulder or neck, this capicola is air-dried for four to five months. It has a tender texture and is prepared with a variety of spices, herbs, and sometimes wine.

Pairs perfectly with fresh baguette – no condiments or cheese needed. The flavour of the meat carries the sandwich.

Ingredients: Pork, Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Fennel, Sodium Ascorbate, Sodium Nitrite, Potassium Nitrate

Frank Abballe immigrated to Canada when he was a young boy, but his roots on his family’s farm in Italy drew him back over the years. It was on these visits that he decided to work alongside the Italian masters of air-dried meats, to perfect his craft. He learned the value of hand-selecting each piece of meat, and the benefits of providing personal attention. Thirty years later, Frank has perfected the secrets of his trade. La Cultura Salumi is Frank and Jane's retirement dream and they are living it out in Quinte West.
