Bigorre “Black Pork”

The Noir de Bigorre pig is the oldest breed of pig known in France. Similar to the Spanish Iberico, this breed is deep black in color and originated in the foothills of the French Pyrenees in the area around Nébouzanne, which stretches between the departments of Haute-Garonne, Haute-Pyrénées and Gers. – Source

Pepperoni Pizza

Pepperoni is an American variety of salami, made from cured pork and beef mixed together and seasoned with paprika or other chili pepper. Pepperoni is characteristically soft, slightly smoky, and bright red in color. Thinly sliced pepperoni is a popular pizza topping in American-style pizzerias. – Wikipedia


Soppressata is an Italian dry salami. Even if there are many variations, two principal types are made: a cured dry sausage typical of Basilicata, Apulia,and Calabria, and a very different uncured salame, made in Tuscany and Liguria. It is part of southern Italian cultural heritage, much more than in the north, that locals (especially in the smaller rural towns) will still slaughter the pig themselves and make their own soppressata, along with other cured meats as a tradition: nothing goes to waste. Soppressata is sometimes prepared using ham. – Wikipedia
