Red Bear Provisions are the masters of taking old-world recipes and reinterpreting them in their Chicago shop, using the freshest, highest quality ingredients available. Del Toro is crafted in the style of the Spanish chorizo, rich and flavorful, it’s made with authentic Dulce and Picante Pimenton de la Vera, a smoked red pepper, for a marriage of flavor opposites that, when merged with aromatic garlic, fragrant oregano, and sweet wine white, makes for a charcuterie masterpiece. Cured and dried for several weeks until the flavors fully develop and shine in their sweet, smoky boldness.
This inventive little “salami stick” is a great new format, perfect to make a little charcuterie platter for one or two. Send it as part of a gourmet gift basket alongside some other Red Bear salamis – just add a few cheeses, crackers and you’ve got a great gift for the foodie in your life. And there’s nothing more amazing than thinly-sliced Del Toro, fresh crusty bread, cold beer and your favorite Sunday game. Or take it on an outdoorsy picnic or hike and munch away when you need some protein and flavor.
Red Bear Provisions is based out of Chicago, and always uses farm-raised meats for their artisanal, small-batch salami. They never use any hormones, nitrites or nitrates in their salamis, just high-quality ingredients and know-how.
