We went to a week-long cooking school in Emiglia Romagna on one of our epic Italian adventures. We had so much fun, and I learned how to make so many delicious dishes. Sisters, Monica and Barbara, run the school Try & Taste. This is their recipe for Salame di Cioccolato, Chocolate Salami. It is so easy, so decadent, and so incredibly amazing paired with a glass of red wine. Seriously amazing!! I suggest a robust glass of Sesterzo, a 100% Sangiovese red wine from Poggio Grande located in the Val d’Orcia area in Tuscany.
To make this vegan-friendly substitute butter with a plant-based butter, I use Miyokos European Cultured Butter.
