Recently photographed Olympic Provisions in the SE industrial area of Portland for the Finder section of Willamette Week. They have bequeathed themselves with the title "American Charcuterie." Oh, I love the hipsters of Portland, never taking themselves too seriously. I will say that it is a beautiful space, the food is quite fancy and tasty and owner/Salumist Elias Cairo is a doll. He let me into the super secret and protected back area to check out the shiny and pungent meat. The only requirement was that I had to wear a white jacket and a rakish sailor style white paper cap (that I got to keep for my very own). Who knew sausage could look so fabulous, plus OP is Oregon’s first USDA certified meat-curing facility, so that's pretty cool too.
