Citterio Mortadella

The origins of Mortadella are ancient, dating back to the 14th Century and recognized as the most cherished pork specialty of Italy’s renowned culinary capital, the city of Bologna.

Mortadella Citterio is produced in this country following the same authentic recipe perfected over generations by the Citterio family. Following tradition, Citterio Salumieri begin with meticulously selected, lean cuts of fresh premium-quality pork that are then finely minced into a buttery purée. Discrete accents of selected spices, whole peppercorns — whole pistachios, in some varieties — are sparingly added along with dices of pure, white fat to enhance the traditional flavor and distinctively composed texture.

Most critical, Citterio unique preparation method is focused strictly on developing the luxurious flavor and appealing color of its Mortadella by gently and slowly roasting it into the meat itself, never by over-whelming it with heavy seasonings or other additives. It’s a delicately balanced and unhurried baking ritual, indeed, at soothing heat levels in brick ovens specially built for bringing out the characteristic aroma and softness of truly classic Mortadella Citterio.
