Fruity "Charcuterie"

Far from being a new-fangled vegan substitute, this Greek fig "salami" is a first cousin to panforte de siena, a dense, peppery, dried fig loaf traditional in Italy since the 13th century. Hovering between sweet and savory, these chewy logs of deliciousness can sub in for jam or chutney on bread, toast, or crackers, with nuts or dessert, and definitely with wine. Fruity and spicy, they delight the palate both before and after dinner. Each flavor contains only simple, whole ingredients: figs, aleppo pepper, and either orange zest, pistachios, or smoked paprika. Ingeniously packaged like meat salami, easy to slice and serve, they make a healthy yet fun snack, hostess gift, or offering to your favorite vegan. Made in Greece.

Made in Greece

Vivianna Karamanis comes from a food family with Greek roots. She grew up in New Jersey, the daughter of a wholesale seafood distributor and restaurateur who took his family to Greece every summer. Her paternal grandfather ran the local bakaliko (little market) on the Greek island of Chios, and her maternal grandfather was a mastic farmer. She always returned home from her Greek summer vacations with tins of locally produced products. She decided to follow her heart to Athens, and it was then that she began to notice beautifully packaged, high-quality Greek foods. She tracked down some of their local producers, and decided to start a business to bring their unforgettable flavors home to the US.

Pros

  • vegetarian, good serving size

Cons

  • would have liked buying only one "just in case"

Best Uses

  • with cheese, crackers, etc.

Like the salamis. Like to try the unusual. This is a great substitute for meat salamis, healthwise and even better tasting. Eat slices on pita chips, but want to try something else. Would have welcomed suggestions for serving. Yum.
