I love shopping at my local Whole Foods in Denver. The associates are always incredibly friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. I have especially gleaned so much information from the fromager, a wonderful woman who always seems to know exactly what I’m looking for.
This weekend, I was shopping for the ingredients for this Marinated Greek-Style Pasta in the March issue of Southern Living. I wanted a high-quality, slow-cured salami, but the varieties in the cooler didn’t seem quite right. The fromager directed me to the Calabrese, a slightly spicy salami with Sangiovese wine by Olli Salumeria out of Virginia.
One bite of this delicacy this evening told me that, once again, she knew her stuff! Our pasta dish was absolutely delightful.
