Tempesta Brings Locally-Made Italian Meats to West Town

IMG_1911

Italian delis are all over the region, but a new one in West Town is unique, because they make pretty much all of the cured meats themselves. The family is originally from Calabria, and one of their beloved, spreadable sausages is the star of a number of items they now carry in their store. There are three generations involved in this story. The Calabrian butcher who speaks no English; his son, who began manufacturing soppressata, culatello and ‘nduja here in Franklin Park, and then his son, who is overseeing the family’s foray into a retail spot in West Town.
