Our cheeses are from local artisanal cheesemakers. Although we also serve pasteurized cheese, we support the "slow cheese" based on the raw milk cheese revolution. These small producers refuse the shortcuts of modernity, respecting nature and keeping the tradition and taste alive.
'When you pasteurize milk, you deprive it of its soul.' (Carlo Petrini, founder of Slow Food).
The salumi we use (USA 100% all natural Berkshire pork) are from talented artisans in the States who use Italian techniques.
Our boards are served with sourdough bread, fresh fruit, jam, and of course with our delicious SAVORY GELATO. Have you ever tried Gelato made from Asparagus and white pepper paired with some Cheddar Cheese? Don't miss the opportunity!
Gluten free "Farinata" (chick pea Bread)
L'Albero likes to include everyone. For those who have an intolerance to gluten, our Cheese and Charcuterie boards can be prepared with homemade "Farinata"* (chick pea bread). "Farinata", which is typical from the Liguria Region, is made with only chick pea flour, water, salt, and extra virgin olive oil! "Semplicemente buonissimi." "Simply amazing!"
