I am staying at Fattoria Mansi Bernardini every morning I walk through the Tuscan hills here in Lucca Italy.
I truly understand why tourists flock all around the world to experience everything: Made In Italy.
I am on a mission here in Italy to be part of the preservation that we must help the small family businesses by simply buying from them.
When it comes to food tasting Italy has to be one of the best nations in the world. Food is the heart and soul of communication in Italy.
Food and family are the heart and soul of what Italians are all about.
When it comes to cold meats everyone around the globe loves to eat Italian food and drink wine.
It is wine season making and I just happened to come across this.
Tiny zucchini are in season right now. I love rosemary too.
How Is Salami Made?
The Prosciutto 24 months left hanging before it is purchased but these are all made to order. The pepper is grown on the land.

How do you make Salami? How much time and effort is required to make prosciutto, pancetta let alone salami?
Four Generations Of Salami Making
Situated in a picturesque village called Matraia overlooking spectacular views is a small supermarket. To the naked eye, you would not know there are 600 years of salami making.
The skill and art of what goes into producing salami are why we should support small businesses. Sourcing the pigs is a skill and making sure the pig is of high quality. To produce the best tasting end result.
Watching them make the salami was wonderful. Everything is all created by touch and feel. The pepper placed into the salami is grown by this family. It smelt amazing. The men rise at 4 am and begin boiling salami for hours before they painfully sort out which cut of pigs are used for each salami type.
Made In Tuscany Lucca
Each region across Italy creates its own salami. So when buying here you won’t get it anywhere else.
