“Culatello di Zibello” (central part of pork leg) PDO - Slow Food - 1.95kg Podere Cadassa
This well-renowned Italian cold cut, the “Culatello di Zibello” PDO by Podere Cadassa, is made from the most prized pork cut: the central part of the ham. The company Podere Cadassa, which is located in Colorno in Emilia Romagna, uses the central part of the pork leg which is de-boned, cleaned and packed in salt for five days. Afterwards, the meat is washed with wine and filled in the pork bladder; lastly, it is tied by hand and takes on its signature pear-shaped form. The “Culatello” ages in a natural cellar where windows are left ajar, to ensure an adequate ventilation and supply of fresh air; as a matter of fact, the “Culatello di Zibello” is produced between the months of September and March, when it is cold outside and there is a dense fog.
The “Culatello di Zibello” has obtained the PDO certification from the “Consorzio di tutela” (supervisory consortium) and is part of the Slow Food Presidia: both these certifications guarantee a careful selection of the product and its raw materials, as well as a high-quality processing. Indeed, the Podere Cadassa, which has been a beloved refreshment area in the Emilia-Romagna’s countryside since 1780, applies ancient peasant traditions and artisanal processing methods.
“Culatello di Zibello” is only made with pork, salt and pepper; it does not contain any preservatives or gluten and is hand-made by skilled butchers who leave it to rest in the Podere Cadassa farm rooms in a religious silence. Thanks to daily quality checks, the “Culatello di Zibello” develops its signature unique scent and fragrance. It is available in a 1.95kg cleaned piece.
