So I was waxing eloquent about St. Killian’s and forgot to bring up another terrific charcuterie source Mondo Market at The Source in RiNo- or the River North area of Denver. Just across the foyer from the recently reviewed Acorn restaurant, this is another not-to-be-missed spot for imported meats and cheeses and all the accouterments needed for a successful charcuterie presentation. I started out with a Serrano ham, Toscano prosciutto, sweet soppresata, speck and a couple of more.
All were delightful but I definitely loved the speck and the Toscano prosciutto. Though I normally preferring the salty and savory blend of the Serrano, I thought the Toscano was sweeter and lighter, so made for a great taste test the next time you do a presentation. Prices were very good, the service helpful and knowledgeable, all in all a place I’ll be visiting many times in the future.
Another highlight was duck sausage they were sampling in the store. Normally I’m not a big fan of sausages particularly when I have to cut them as I can’t easily slice them thin enough to make them anything but a chewy exercise. Mondo Market provided me a thinly sliced taste test of the duck sausage that was out of this world. So I’m going to order some thin sliced duck sausage my next time in.
