Since moving my shop to Boston’s North End (“Little Italy”) neighborhood 12 years ago, I have had so much fun wandering through the small streets, discovering hidden gems, including a few mom and pop old world salumerias. We love entertaining at home and often spend hours cooking for friends, but on a busy work day it can be tough to find the time. In a quick trip to the local Italian charcuterie and cheese shop, I can gather Piave cheese, Fennel Sopressata, Castelvetrano green olives and Rosemary Crackers and be ready with appetizers in a flash! settingnit up is always my favorite part and I love to use the slate board from the shop forma distincitve presentation!
Favorite places include Monica’s Mercato on Salem Street, Depasquale’s on Hanover and Salumeria Italiana on Richmond Street!
