The 7th Annual Taste of Petaluma is today…Sugo Trattoria’s Artisan Cured Coppa is just one of several rustic home-cured meats owner/chef Peter White is now preparing himself

Inspired by his love of regional Italian cuisine, Sugo Trattoria owner/chef Peter White is now preparing and curing his own artisan sausages in house

Last week, I had the pleasure of accompanying Taste of Petaluma coordinator Laura Sunday and several local food writers on preview tastes all around town.  Sugo Trattoria’s chef/owner Peter White has really raised the bar.  Inspired by his love of regional Italian and Spanish cuisines, and his wife and business partner Annette’s Italian heritage, White is now preparing and curing his own artisan sausages in house.  He’s just getting started but, so far, has crafted sumptuous salamis, bresaola, coppa, and prosciutto from pork and has been experimenting with duck and lamb prosciuttos as well.   Peter and Annette will introduce these fine meats to the public today by offering a generous tasting of Peter’s own Bresaola and Coppa Carpaccio served with Arugula and Fennel Salad.  Stay-tuned to ARThound for a full profile of the Whites and Sugo Trattoria.

Sugo Trattoria is located at 5 Petaluma Blvd. South, Suite B, Petaluma (in the row of brick buildings on the southeast corner of B Street and Petaluma Blvd North, next door to Peet’s Coffee.)  Sugo Trattoria will serve a generous sampling of
Bresaola and Coppa Carpaccio with Arugula and Fennel Salad at Saturday’s 7th Taste of Petaluma
