Genoa salami is one of the most popular Italian meats and is believed to be produced in the city of Genoa. However, it is actually an American-invented type of salami and most Genovese people wouldn’t acknowledge it as a traditional Italian product made in their area.
An uncooked, cured sausage, genoa is typically made with pork and beef and stuffed in a natural casing. It usually includes garlic, peppercorns, salt, and fennel seeds. Red wine is sometimes added as an ingredient to make it softer than most hard salamis. It can be found on most antipasto platters and is delicious on sandwiches.Ditalia offers a wide variety of popular Italian salamis and cured meats. Shop our most popular salami here.
