Translated simply to "dry sausage", Sauccison Sec is the quintessential French picnic salami. Ours is from Olympia Provisions, and is made with pure Pacific Northwest pork, fresh garlic and piquant cracked black pepper. A staple of every Frenchman's diet, our Saucisson Sec exhibits old world flavor and craft. Pair with Pinot Noir or any rustic red, and serve with a crusty baguette, triple cream brie and strawberries.
Salami naturally dries and hardens as it ages. Store your wrapped salami in the refrigerator to slow the aging process and enjoy it as soon as you can.

Salumist Elias Cairo grew up first generation Greek-American, with a father who made charcuterie at home. Doing things the old fashioned way was commonplace - a natural influence on his later journey to Europe, to apprentice in the kitchens of masters. It was there that Cairo rediscovered the art of curing meat and found inspiration in the meat markets and mountain towns of the old world. The experience affirmed what he'd been taught all along - handmade is better. Back in Portland, Oregon, Elias set out to approach the craft of charcuterie with purity and patience, recreating a nearly extinct old world technique that is seldom seen in America. The result is Olympic Provisions, Oregon's first USDA-approved salumeria, established in 2009, but deeply rooted in the past.
