Cacciatorini can be separated into two words Cacciatori which means ‘hunter’ in Italian and the ‘ini’ on the end of the word implies ‘small.’ Cacciatorini was traditionally a small sausage used by hunters as a snack as they were small in size, easy to put in a knapsack or pocket, and normally consumed all at one meal.

The history of this salame can be traced to the time of the Longobard invasions in the hilly regions of Lombardy, Italy, in the middle 500’s. The main staple of the diet of the invading barbarians was cured meat, mostly pork because it preserved well and endured their long invading migrations.

Today, Cacciatorini sausages are popular for their characteristic taste and small size, which adds to its popularity since it is always eaten quickly while still remarkably fresh. Salumeria Biellese Cacciatorini is made from pure coarsely ground pork, lightly seasoned with garlic and rustic red wine. The flavor is consistent, fresh, slightly sweet and salty, and balanced with just the right amount of white fat marbled with the rich burgundy color of air cured/dried pork.

As the hunters knew centuries ago, cacciatorini is the perfect take anywhere snack. A tasty addition to a family antipasto as well as the star of a charcuterie board pared with a dry aged cheese, cacciatorini survives in its simplicity.

The word salumi comes from the Italian word salume, pl. salumi "salted meat", derived from Latin sal "salt". A salumeria is a food producer and retail store that produces salumi and other food products and shares many of the same characteristics as a delicatessen. The salumeria originated in Italy during the Middle Ages. Biellese means native to Biella a province in Northern Italy stretching across the Piedmont. This unspoiled region is known for its impressive culinary tradition and great wines.

In 1925, two friends from the Italian Province of Biella, decided New York was ready for some delicacies from home, and opened a shop just one block from the current location and named it Italian Salumeria Biellese-Groceries and Charcuterie. Together they made Italian dry cured salted meats to sell in their shop. They used mostly pork, old world traditions, and recipes to make salame, capocollo, mortadella, zampino, testa, and sausages. Soon they were supplying restaurants with their classic meats that evoked memories of the old country and appealed to both chefs and patrons.
