It's National Cold Cut Day❗

Whether you call them lunch meat, deli meats, cold cuts or you are like me and call them "sammies". 

According to, "today was made for sammie's and snack makers. There are the deli staples like the humble turkey and ham. Then there are the culinary delights like salami and prosciutto and flavors that require a more acquired taste like head cheese and braunschweiger. Whatever your taste, there is a cold cut for everyone. Well, everyone except the vegetarian.🤷🏽

Every nationality has a flavor all its own when it comes to seasoning, curing, and aging a variety of meats. Spices, smoking, and time alter the taste. When the animal is butchered, temperature and air circulation affect the flavor, too.

It's essentially an art history lesson all rolled into one, and at the end of it all, there's mouth-watering food that can be enjoyed with friends and a good beverage."

In honor of today, here's a few ways you can pay homage:

📍Visit your local deli and pick up some of your fave cold cuts.

📍Challenge your friends to a sammie making contest.

📍Try something new like this samme recipe: 𝗦𝘂𝗽𝗲𝗿 𝗦𝘂𝗯
