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.
