With Col’tempo Salami settling into their new premises, foodies will be able to meet Hylton Rabinowitz and, occasionally, his son Paul, two people passionate about their products, and food in general. And, of course, buy artisanal cured meats and handpicked deli items. Ingrid Shevlin checks out Col’tempo
Col’tempo Salami, the purveyors of meat cured the traditional Italian way, has a new home in Florida Road. Well, not exactly in Florida Road, but just off it in 8th Avenue. This is good because it’s an oasis of calm and good food while still close to the bustle and hustle of Florida road. And there’s plenty of parking. Hooray. Of course, it may not be as peaceful when the foodie hordes discover it and realise that Col’tempo is more than makers of simple, real food, as they put it. No, it’s a homage to food in the form of the aforementioned meats and to its deli items, luxurious and hard-to-find ingredients, all of which have been handpicked by Hylton Rabinowitz.
