Bitelab Meat Description: "The Franco salami must be smoky, sexy, and smooth. Franco's meat will pair with lean, strong venison. Sharp Tellicherry peppercorns and caramelized onions provide Franco's underlying flavors, complemented by a charming hint of lavender. The Franco salami’s taste will be arrogant, distinctive, and completely undeniable."
Sandwich Recipe: "Sandwich, Deconstructed" (It's not a sandwich so much as a commentary on sandwiches.) The salami is made to look like it's a celebrity, being watched through the lens of a tomato and two pieces of white bread.
