Boar's Head in Madison?

Postby bebopfan » Mon Aug 27, 2007 11:39 pm

Greets all,

Are there any delis or supermarkets in the Madison area that carry Boar's Head meats and cheeses? I was hoping their website could provide a list of dealers, but no such luck. Also, any recommendations on where I can find good cured salami in the area? All help is appreciated.

Artamos, on Whitney Way. There are others.

Salami

You can find good cured salami at Fraboni's on regent street. There's another store on Monona Drive, but the regent location seems to have a better selection of cured meats.

They carry columbus brand, which is one of the original San Francisco "traditional" makers.

Columbus is one of the few companies recognized officially as making Italian style dry salami.

A recent find of mine that you might also like is the Volpi all natural style they are selling at Trader Joe's. Excellent price.

I'll also recommend Daniele Brand, another domestic, also for sale at Fraboni's.

Molinari is also for sale there, another SF Brand. Molinari is probably my favorite domestic brand.

For a real treat it might be worth heading out to Waukesha. V.Richard's market stocks several italian import brands at the deli case along with the better domestics. And while you are looking for Salami, look for La Quercia Brand American Berkshire pork Prosciutto. Delicious. Just as good as anything from Parma, if not better. And made in an artisan fashion in Iowa no less.

Enjoy.

Oh, and Boar's Head. You can find it at Artamos, and I believe, Jacobson Brothers on Sherman, and in Fitchburg.

What about Grape and Company out on Old Sauk? They have nice meats and cheeses, so I would think they might carry this.
Unrelated, but I think they carry Italian buffalo mozzarella, which is a real treat this time of year with tomatoes and basil. Buffalo mozz has a much creamier texture than cows milk and a fabulous tang. Now's the time to get your hands on some.

Alberici's in Evansville has Boar's Head. Does Jenifer Street carry it?

I don't know of anywhere other than Artamos (and I only found out about that a couple of months ago - made this east coast girl very happy!), but I recently heard that Glass Nickel is now using Boar's Head meats in their subs.

Holy shit, that's going on my list of awesomely bad websites. All it's missing is an Alanis Morissette MIDI on autoplay and it'd be 1996 all over again.

Don't forget about one of those boxes with the rainbow flag that says Madison and the current temperature, those are sweet!
