Creminelli Fine Meats
Salt Lake City, Utah
According to family legend, the Creminellis have been producing artisan cured meats since the 1600s. Cristiano Creminelli grew up helping his father in his salumificio at the foot of the Italian Alps, and by 2000 was asked by the Istituto Alberghiero di Trivero to instruct students in the art of salame making. In 2006 the salumificio was the first meat producer in the province to receive the Artisanal Excellence Award, bestowed by the Piedmont region and the Slow Food organization. Creminelli brought his talents to the United States, and Creminelli Fine Meats started production here in June 2007. Creminelli only uses all natural and organic ingredients, and heritage meats that are humanely raised without antibiotics. They source locally whenever possible, and flavor and quality are of the utmost importance in all their salamis.

Working for a produce distributor, the owner of EarthWorks had the good fortune to meet many chefs and eat good food in numerous Bay Area restaurants. Within one week, he was served a salad strewed with pansy petals, a soup garnished with wild mustard blossoms, and a dessert sporting a mint tip. He was inspired to grow his already vast garden and create the beautiful and edible additions he was seeing throughout the restaurant community. Countless hours and truckloads of compost later, EarthWorks came to be.
