Utah markets share ideas for packing a great picnic
Food » Six Utah businesses share ideas for packing a great picnic.

< Previous Page

Road trip » Stopping for fast food on a road trip is a terrible idea, says Matt Caputo, director of marketing at Tony Caputo’s Market and Deli. He sees packing the car and heading on the road as a cause for celebration, so he prefers using the same foods that he would serve at a party at his house.

Start with Caputo’s house-made burrata cheese ($4.50 for 4 ounces) and Creminelli truffled wild boar salami ($7.15 for a half stick) on sliced baci rolls. Think of the rich, creamy burrata "as a triple cream mozzarella," he said. His store is the only one in the country to carry the limited-edition, Utah salami. "Sliced extra thick, it is easy to pass around and nosh while keeping eyes on the road," Caputo said. He also recommends Castelvetrano Sicilian olives ($2.24/lb), known for being sweet, nutty and crisp.

Caputo’s three-meat Muffaletta sandwiches ($8.25 each) made with mortadella, prosciutto cotto and Genoa salami are great on the go. "These sandwiches are ginormous so half is plenty for one person," said Caputo, adding that the meats and the ciabatta roll are easy to bite through.

For dessert, get Spanish Rabitos (99 cents each), made with dried fig, truffle and liquor filling, surrounded by a chocolate coating.
