Salumist, Elias Cairo, grew up first generation Greek-American, with a father who made charcuterie at home. For five years in Switzerland under master chef Annegret Schlumpf, Cairo completed a chef apprenticeship developing his skills and passion for making charcuterie utilizing the finest ingredients. The experience affirmed his beliefs – handmade is better. Back in Portland, Oregon, Elias set out to approach the craft of charcuterie with purity and patience, recreating a nearly extinct old world technique that’s seldom seen in America.

Cairo has plans to put Portland on the artisanal meat map with his Olympia Provisions store, 2 restaurants, and online shop which provides a new Twist on Old-Country Tastes.

Check out "Salami of the Month Club,"  which allows members to sample one variety of its 12 salamis each month.

Olympia Provisions is a USDA approved charcuterie shop in Portland, Oregon. The focus right now is all things pork!  They butcher, cure, ferment, stuff, dry, cook and smoke almost every cut of the venerable pig.  Shop the online store for a nice selection of goods starting at $10.

Here's two of the many offerings you will find available online.

The ever growing popularity of dry rosé in the wine world is remarkable. We here at OP happen to love rosé (and not just in the summer), it pairs perfectly with all our offerings.
