Casella's prosciutto is something special. Made exclusively from our rare-breed heritage pigs, Casella's follows a time-honored Italian recipe — happy, healthy pigs, salt, and time — there are no other ingredients in these hams. The results are consistently gorgeous — juicy, marbled meat with a delicate nutty flavor.
Casella's was founded in 2016 in part to preserve endangered species of livestock from extinction and to save over 40 Heritage Foods farms. Cesare Casella learned about the plight of endangered foods through Slow Food, a non-profit organization started in 1986 in Italy, when the first McDonald’s opened on the Spanish Steps of Rome. To counter the homogenizing effects of fast food, Slow Food was formed to bring attention to regional cuisines and ingredients.
Cesare Casella is best known as the chef with the rosemary. He is rarely without a small bouquet springing from his pocket, a signature that reflects his dedication to his herb-inflected cuisine, fresh ingredients and his childhood in the Tuscan countryside where rosemary grew wild, and his family ran a small trattoria, called Vipore, outside of Lucca.
