Oliveto Chef de Cuisine Luciano Duco with Giorgio Sacchini, Tuscany 2014

While Chef Rhodehamel is busy in the Oliveto kitchen with this year’s Whole Hog preparations, Chef de cuisine Luciano Duco is currently on a reconnaissance mission in Tuscany hunting wild boar and making salume with our friend and truffle hunter, Giorgio Sacchini.

This from his latest email:

I’ve been Giorgio’s #2 in the kitchen for the hunting club he is part of and I think I will be tomorrow also. I’ve been standing in the cold waiting for the cinghiale for the past two days with no luck but the squadra had a final count of 17.

Luciano has been honing his salume knowledge for some time now, as anyone who has sampled his salume plate (pictured below) can attest to, so we expect him to return brimming with new ideas and ready to jump in to Whole Hog action.
