A Day in the Sibillinis: Marche Prosciutto, Salami, Cheese and Truffles

Not far from here is a little town in the Sibillini mountains called Montemonaco, a place we like to visit several times a year.Not far from here is a little town in the Sibillini mountains called Montemonaco, a place we like to visit several times a year. The Sibillinis (a protected national park) are part of the Apennine range, the mountains that split Italy into East and West, the “spine” of the country.
Both Le Marche which lays on the East side of the Apennines and Umbria on the West side are famous for lots of fabulous food stuff, including prosciutto, salamis, truffles and porcini mushrooms.

Once you eat a local prosciutto you’ll never go back to eating the famous prosciuttos like Parma for instance. Ours are so flavorful, and in the case of the butchers I go to, are made from animals that are raised humanely by the butchers and eat food grown by the same butchers; in other words, animals that get to run about outdoors with their mates and are fed good quality food without hormones and antibiotics.

They sell wonderful local delicacies: proscuitto, salamis, cheeses from sheep, goat and cow, all sorts of lovely breads, pickles, pasta, legumes and my favorite, truffles and porcini mushrooms.
