Salume Beddu Salumeria Is Rolling in Dough!

Posted By on Fri, May 21, 2010 at 12:40 PM

When Mark Sanfilippo and partner Ben Poremba opened their retail shop, Salume Beddu Salumeria, a few weeks back, local lovers of artisan-cured meats rejoiced. Sanfilippo, a St. Louis native who returned after ten years out west schooling himself, literally, in how the sausage is made, had earned plaudits for his products, which were available only on a very limited basis.

Still, while the new salumeria is provisioned with all manner of antipasti, something has been missing:

Bread.

Bread! More specifically, focaccia baked by Erik Jacobs for sale at Salume Beddu. Now go get you some! - ERIK JACOBS
  • Erik Jacobs
  • Bread! More specifically, focaccia baked by Erik Jacobs for sale at Salume Beddu. Now go get you some!

All that changes tomorrow (Saturday), when Erik Jacobs, a personal chef and former co-owner of Babalu's, brings his baked bounty to Salume Beddu's shelves.

"I'll be baking some specialty focaccia exclusively for Salume Beddu," Jacobs tells Gut Check. "Very traditional to start: sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, some rosemary/olive oil, and several different kinds of grissini. If there is demand, I may do some pugliese and/or ciabatta -- whatever people ask for, really."

Jacobs and Sanfilippo met while teaching at L'Ecole Culinaire and struck up a friendship based on a passion for all things cured.

Praise the lard and pass the bread!
