Growing up with Italian heritage, I have a certain appreciation for a good delicatessen. How hot is that salami? Do you slice it fresh? What are those olives marinated in? How fresh is that ricotta cheese? These are all questions I have learned to ask whenever I walk into my local deli.
What makes a good deli is probably different for everyone, but I think we can all agree that good quality cured meats and a large variety of cheese is key. I mean, who doesn’t like cheese? The real question is, where is the best delicatessen in town?
Whether you like prosciutto or ham, camembert or brie, or something else entirely, I want to know where you go to buy your favourite deli goods in Canberra.
