Italians love cheese and charcuterie or "affettati" as we called them. Italians grow up eating them, when children in a sandwich, when adult together with a good glass of wine. Cheeses and charcuterie are produced all over Italy, it is part of the country DNA and traditions, and each region, even village, uses a slightly different recipe, recipe that has been passed down generation after generation.
It would have been impossible to create a map that showcases all cheeses and charcuterie produced in Italy, so we opted for one that features what we think are the most important ones. The map is available as a PDF or a poster measuring 61x91cm. If ordering the PDF version, the file has a high resolution and can be printed in any size.
The artisan who made it
Italyabroad.com was founded in 2003 in response to a lack of quality Italian wine and food. As soon as Andrea (the founder) landed in the UK noticed that Italian products available were not the ones he was used to when grwoing up in Italy.
From wine to food, Andrea could not find the quality he was used to and coming from a wine making family, he decided to embark in a journey to source quality Italian wine and food from small Italian, artisan producers: Italyabroad.com’s mission is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and artisans.
All our products are authentic and of the highest quality and made using the best, natural ingredients and respecting the environment; none of our product contains palm oil or preservatives, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is essential for a long and healthy life. We do not import industrially made products or so called "Italian sounding" food.
Since starting in 2003, Italyabroad.com has been the recipient of several awards.
