“I LOVE Bresaola, but it isn't easy to find around here. If you live in a 'real' city ask for it at your favorite Italian salumeria or deli. This is adapted from "The Four Seasons of Italian Cooking" by A.J. Battifarano and Alan Richardson. This is rustic enough for a casual family meal and nice enough for company. I have even served it with the addition of a handful of Arugala (scattered on top of the bresaola b4 you add the mushrooms) and a good crusty bread as a light meal or lunch. You could also stuff this all inside a loaf of bread and have sandwiches.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Arrange bresaola slices, slightly overlapping on a large platter.
  2. Scatter mushrooms over bresaola, then sprinkle with parsley.
  3. Using a vegetable peeler, shave thin slivers of the cheese over bresaola.
