Many people mistake salumi plate for a salami platter, thinking that it must be a typo or something. This is why some restaurants often change its name on their menu to avoid confusion. But what exactly is a salumi plate?
The term salumi refers to Italian-style cured or preserved meats and in ways synonymous to the famous French charchuterie. As such, a salumi plate is basically a platter of different kinds of preserved meats, often sold and served as appetizers in restaurants. These meats can either be salt-cured, smoked or even fermented.
In most cases, these would be made from pork. However, they can also be made from other types of meat like beef, lamb and others. In most restaurants, a salumi plate would include different types of cured or preserved meat in the platter. There are restaurants though that would serve only one particular type of meat, like a pork salumi plate for instance.
As mentioned earlier, people tend to think of a salumi plate as mispelled salami platter. Technically speaking though, a salami is a type of salumi since a salami is basically a type of cured meat. So don’t be surprised when you see salami on that salumi plate you ordered.
