La Quercia

La Quercia
How did a family in Norwalk, Iowa come to produce some of the best cured meats in the world? It started with tradition: After three and a half years in Parma, Italy, Herb and Kathy Eckhouse brought classic techniques back home to create their signature salumi, something they say “expresses our appreciation for the beauty and bounty of Iowa”. Adding responsible sourcing and sustainability to the recipe means that their products don’t just taste great, they’re also produced with the highest standards and best quality ingredients around.

To help more people get a bite of the good stuff, we now offer the full La Quercia line as well as curated selections that will make any meat lover squeal with delight.

    Prosciutto Piccante

    $10.99/EA

    Think of it as prosciutto’s super suave fraternal twin: it’s made using the same methods as La Quercia’s Prosciutto Americano and then smoked with real applewood, which imbues the ham with a smoky aroma and flavor, on top of its inherently sweet and rich characteristics. Read More
