Behind the scenes of our inspired week of charcuterie.
This week on Simmer Down we have the opportunity to speak with Chef Roberto Leoci, owner of Leoci’s Trattoria in Savannah, Georgia. Chef Roberto is doing wonderful artisinal charcuterie with a modern day twist. Listen up as he explains AND tells us a few things we didn’t need to know.
Food on a stick. Fusion food. Gluten free food. Local food. Whatever food. Charcuterie is today’s food in fashion.
As seen on the cover of this months Epicures issue of Savannah Magazine.
While you might follow this recipe, you may not arrive in the exact same place as Roberto Leoci. This is the beauty of discovering one’s purpose.
Traditionally, prosciutto is a salt cured and dry aged Italian ham with a delicate buttery texture. In this duck version, Chef Roberto Leoci spins the story a little differently by using a fresh duck breast and a few simple ingredients. The only thing you may find difficult with his technique…is the waiting.

I’m sitting with artisan chef and restaurant owner Roberto Leoci in an old meat-packing building that is now Meddin Studios. It’s 80-degrees outside, but cold in here, as if the refrigeration has permanently seeped into the concrete floor. The place is creepy. Barn-size metal doors divide the rooms; to slide one open you have to press your entire body against it. The old wooden tables move as easily as live oaks and are just as creaky. Everything is heavy. Even the new glass doors are propped open by 25-pound sandbags.
