Olympic Provisions meats are now at Slough Food! Did you see Saveur Magazines Top 100 list this January?
from Saveur issue #144: Portland, Oregon’s Olympic Provisions makes some of the finest charcuterie we’ve tasted, from regional variations on Spanish chorizo to French saucissons to Italian soppressate. Our favorite is the Greekloukanika, aromatic with orange zest and cumin, and, like many Olympic sausages, dotted with creamy nubbins of fat thanks to the local pork used, enriched by the pigs’ diet of foraged hazelnuts.
We have brought in a few selections:
- Pork Rillette: confit pork shoulder meat, ginger, warm spices – delicious.
- Mortadella: classic deli meat; the texture alone is amazing.
- Capicola: again, wonderful texture, perfect heat and spice.
- Saucisson Sec: classic French salami with black pepper and garlic.
- Loukanika: Greek style salami with orange zest and cumin – love it.
This Sunday, March 3rd from 11 till 5, Knut Christiansen is bringing his traveling Oyster Party to the Slough Food Courtyard! We’ve added grilled oysters to the line-up, so in addition to slurping on the half shell, you can order your oysters grilled with a selection of sauces. Of course, we will have an oyster friendly wine selection, Boundary Bay IPA on tap, AND we will be tapping a 5 liter keg of cider from the famous Eric Bordelet. Join us this Sunday!
