Salumi/Lazzaroli Pasta

Last week I stopped in to visit Tom at Lazzaroli Pasta to pick up a few items for our book signing.  Anyone who's taken the time to stop by his Germantown store knows that his pastas, raviolis, and sauces are some of the best in town.  In fact, many of you may not even be aware that you've enjoyed his product.  Tom provides quite a bit of the fresh pasta freatured on the menu at City House located just a few blocks away.  Drop by, peruse, and get to know Tom and his wife.  I promise, the service is just as good as their products.

The secret is already out, but Tom has procured (and sold) one of the best and most highly sought after artisan cured meats produced by Salumi in Seattle.  Seriously, there wasn't much left of this product last week, and I have plans to stop back in to clear the shelves!  The smoked paprika salami is out of this world.  For the more adventurous, he's also got some Guanciali in stock that can be used as a pancetta or bacon substitute.

If you've turned on the Food Network anytime in the last 10 years, you've probably come across a portly fellow with shoes matching his ginger hair.  I'm talking about Iron Chef-extrodinaire Mario Batali.  Anyways, Salumi is owned and operated by Batali's family . . . need I say more?

Apparently, Tom was pretty persistent over the years in getting this product in our area.  Nashville is lucky to have someone who is so passionate about great food!  Stop in today and pick up what's left, and be sure to kindly urge (beg) the folks at Salumi to keep it coming by dropping them an email at (

Keep peaceful!
