In Italy, the land of culinary excellence, mortadella is synonymous with good food and the joy of life. Veroni celebrates the mortadella tradition and taste, bringing the largest one ever seen in the U.S. to the Big Apple’s biggest food and wine event.
The giant mortadella, the queen of Italian charcuterie — 661 pounds in weight, 6.4 feet long and 18 inches in diameter– debuted during the Food Network’s New York City Wine & Food Festival (NYCWFF), present by Capital, where Veroni was the event’s Platinum sponsor. More than 50,000 visitors were expected at the event.
It was served during two days of Grand Tasting at the food festival.
This extra-large version is produced with the highest quality meat — shoulder for the pink part and bacon for the white part — cooked slowly for more than 36 hours, to maximize its flavor. Mortadella is definitely the protagonist of exclusive charcuterie boards, paired with aged cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano, a fig or citrus jam and dried and fresh fruits and vegetables, if you like.
Veroni charcuterie stands for its authenticity; in fact, it was the first Italian cured meat producer to import authentic Italian deli meats to the U.S. in 2016. This flavorful cold cut was the first product of Veroni almost a hundred years ago. Indeed, the company is known in Italy as the “mortadella specialist” with a secret recipe handed down from generation to generation within the Veroni Family.
