Salami is an extraordinary food with extraordinary flavour and is a superbly clever way to ‘preserve’ meat. It is quite fascinating really that salami is a fermented food in the way that kimchi, yogurt and cheese are. Meat is minced, mixed with salt, pepper, spices and delicious wine, then emulsified. The mince is packed tightly into skins to foster fermentation, followed by curing. The process is simple once you understand what to do and why you do it and the result is divinely delicious.

Men, women and all colours of the rainbow join them as all their events are LGBTIQA+ welcoming.

This hands-on workshop will culminate in a simple lunch of homemade sausages, salad, simple vegetarian side dishes and tiramisu.

Hot drinks are herbal or caffeine-rich.

And as you host Mara loves singing Italian folk songs, there will also be a song or two for you.

You will be using meat from their own Large English Black Pigs which are raised on pasture, for the salami making class and the lunch sausages will be made from their meat too.

Bring extremely warm clothing, scarves, jacket, warm hat as you will be working al fresco! Lunch will be served inside our farmhouse.

They wait to meet you! Arrivederci! Mara

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
