Salumi master Elias Cairo grew up right here in Salt Lake City. Cairo’s father had a constant supply of home-cured meats, so we can only assume his passion and precision began from a very young age. Fast forward a few decades and we’re in love with his offerings being made in Portland, Oregon. Our first love? Loukanika. It’s an ode to the best of Greece’s blending of sweet aromas and pungent spices. Cumin and orange zest are mixed into the highest quality pork for a salami that is balanced and fragrant with the most covetable texture. Serve slices solo or with crusty bread and milder, semifirm cheeses for a in-between meals snack.
- 5 ounce salami, shipped whole
- Made in Portland, Oregon

Olympia Provisions is one of the last small format producers on the market in America that exemplifies these qualities perfectly.
