On the 21st of March, Spring officially begins and as the days get warmer our desire to enjoy time with our friends and eat good food increases. The perfect way to celebrate the beginning of the season is to share a nice dish with your loved ones and the perfect combo to do that, is to pair cold cuts with beer!

Veroni’s shop offers a large variety of cold cuts and pairing it with a nice can of beer is the easiest and quickest way to prepare a nice aperitif for your friends.

Many types of beer exist, the best advice we can give is to adequately combine flavors and aromas. And even though it may not be so easy to identify: below are some pairings for achieving the best flavor of marriage.

Among the combinations red beer tastes best when paired with speck, prosciutto arrosto, or roasted pancetta.

The most classic combination of light beer is with ham, pork or mortadella.

Among the best combinations for amber beer are those with lightly smoked food, roast beef, and not particularly seasoned cold cuts. Particularly, dry amber beers are perfect to accompany spicy dishes. 

As a reminder to keep in mind, remember that more delicate preparations call for lighter beers, while more important dishes want beers with a more rounded and persistent flavor. So, make sure that the full-bodied flavour of the dish doesn’t overpower the beer and vice versa.

If you want to create a more complete “italian style” aperitif, it is essential to add to the table cheese, bread, chips, olives, carrots and celery! The combination of the flavours will keep you and your friends glued to the table…You won’t be able to stop eating. We suggest you take a look at our website and make sure to check out our cold cuts in your local supermarket.

Buon Appetito!
