The Eighth Day of Pairings – Auricchio Stravecchio, Hot Soppressata & Roasted Red Peppers
Today’s pairing is a real favorite at our 9th Street location, and one we love to put out on the table if company drops by. It goes back to our roots as a neighborhood grocery store by combining three kinds of traditional Italian deli staples — a sharp cheese, a cured meat, and something from the antipasto bar!
Auricchio Stravecchio is our oldest and sharpest Italian provolone — you’ll recognize it in store by its unmistakable black wax coating. It’s got that classic mouth-puckering, salty prickle that everyone loves in provolone; and that’s especially enhanced when eaten alongside thin slices of hot soppressata! Chase the spicy sharpness with a sweet, soothing forkful of roasted red peppers to bring everything back into balance. Not convinced? Stop in and ask our mongers for a taste of this and other South Philly classics. We’ll be happy to help you plan out your Italian Market-inspired holiday feast!
Sample this classic Di Bruno pairing at our Franklin location from 2pm — 6pm on Saturday December 20.
