Berkshire rendition of the classic from Emilia Romagna. Studded with whole black peppercorns, cubes of back fat and Pariani DOP (Denominazione d’ Origine Protetta – “Protected Designation of Origin”) Sicilian Pistachios.
FUN FACT: Mortadella originated in Bologna, the capital of Emilia-Romagna. Anna Del Conte (The Gastronomy of Italy 2001) found a sausage mentioned in a document of the official body of meat preservers in Bologna dated 1376 that may be mortadella.
