Despite its name, Salame Felino has nothing to do with cats. Rather, it's made in the town of Felino, in the foothills of the Apennines behind Parma, and is renowned for its delicacy. Most Salame Felino you'll find in shops are about 1 1/2 inches in diameter (4 cm) and up to 18 inches (40 cm) long, but you can find specially made Salame Felino that's considerably longer, up to about 6 feet (180 cm). Most impressive!
