Celebrate A Local Charcuterie Maker

Celebrate A Local Charcuterie Maker

By now, you've heard of the Victory Cheese Boxes we are putting together. We have a new one that we are super excited about!

This special box focuses on artisan charcuterie by Bill Miner of Il Porcellino Salumi, just up the road in the Berkeley neighborhood.  We've put together a Victory cheese box that includes 3 cheeses from some our favorite American artisan cheese producers, each perfectly paired with an Il Porcellino salami.

Boxes are available for pickup at St. Kilian's and Il Porcellino in Denver. They can also be delivered locally or shipped nationwide.

The box makes a great gift or it can set the scene for a special date night or celebration at home.
What's in a box? Here's an example:
  • Saucisson Sec Salami - Il Porcellino, Denver CO - Traditional French Style Salami with Garlic, Black Pepper, and Carboy Malbec Wine
  • Finback - Mystic Cheese Company, Groton CT - Savory and complex English style bandaged cheese
  • Orange Pistachio Salami - Il Porcellino, Denver CO - Sicilian Style Salami seasoned with Garlic, Fresh Orange Zest, and Sicilian Pistachios
  • Sofia - Capriole Goat Cheese, Greenville, IN - Loire valley inspired good food award winning ashed rind goat, delicate on the inside and flavorful on the edges
  • Diablo Salami - Il Porcellino, Denver CO - A Calabrese Style Salami seasoned with Fennel Seeds and both Whole & Ground Calabrian Chiles.
  • Cabrillo - Stepladder Ranch & Creamery, Cambia CA
  • Redcamper Mostarda
The Victory box is available now and can be ordered for shipping, pickup or delivery. We now a have a new and improved delivery service with scheduled deliveries 7 days a week and a larger area of coverage in Colorado.
Our friends and neighbors, Il Porcellino Salumi, is located just north of our shop, in the Berkley neighborhood. They make some of the finest artisan charcuterie in the United States.  No longer a local secret after multiple awards including Good Food Awards and Grand Champion at Charcuterie Masters, their local deli has expanded to full wholesale production in Basalt, CO.

We're proud to partner with Il Porcellino and stock the majority of their line in our shop, including retail salami's and a rotating collection on the deli slicer.  If you enjoy these products make sure to check out their deli off of Tennyson for some of the best sandwiches in the Denver area.
Easy Pizza Night At Home with Our Improved Pizza Kits

Easy Pizza Night At Home with Our Improved Pizza Kits

We've revamped our pizza kits and we think you're really going to like them.

Pizza kits are back! We have the best ingredients and toppings so you can make the best pizza in Denver, at your home, at anytime. It starts with Babette’s pizza dough, which can be stretched and cooked in a hot pizza oven for a classic Neapolitan-style pizza or rolled out thin and par-baked before topping for an easier home oven version. Next up, most of our kits layer on our favorite simple tomato sauce and a base of aged mozzarella, but sometimes we like to mix it up with pesto or fresh burrata. Then, the final touch is the fun part for us, we like to add a flavorful cheese to bring it all together and an additional topping like local salami, thin sliced prosciutto or pickled peppers. Check out a few of our favorite flavor combos below and all the options HERE.

Looking for baking instructions for your pizza? We've got your covered.
Pizza Oven Instructions
Stretch and spread the pizza dough out thin and arrange it on your peel that has been dusted with cornmeal. Top your pizza on the peel and carefully load it into your pizza oven. You will know when your pie is done when the edge of the crust is bubbling and blistered and the bottom is brown.  For more great tips and directions we recommend Ooni.
Home Oven Instructions
If you are baking your pizza in your conventional home oven, preheat the oven to 450F. You can make your pizza on a sheet pan, a stone, cast iron skillet or directly on parchment paper. If you are using a stone or skillet, be sure to preheat these along with the oven. Use your hands or a rolling pin to roll out the pizza dough to your desired size (additional flour will help keep the dough from sticking and hold it's shape.) A bigger pizza will have a thinner crust and smaller round will have a thicker crust. Pierce the dough with a fork to create small holes for air to escape, and place your crust in the oven for about 2 minutes to par-bake it. Remove it from the oven, and add your toppings. Continue baking until the cheese is melted and the edges of the crust and the bottom of the pizza are golden to dark brown.

Support Cheesemakers with a Victory Cheese Box

Support Cheesemakers with a Victory Cheese Box

We love American cheese
And we would be so sad if it went away. The COVID-19 crisis is devastating the American cheese industry, from dairy farmers and cheesemakers to distributors, restaurants, and cheese counters across the country. A grassroots collection of cheese professionals – including cheesemakers, mongers, chefs, and cheese guilds from across the country – came together to find ways to help our struggling industry – creating the Victory Cheese Box.

Like the Victory Garden movement of a by-gone era, the Victory Cheese Box is a call for cheese lovers to choose domestically-produced artisan cheese. Each cheese in this box supports a local community or family and reflects a commitment to quality in farming, cheesemaking, and deliciousness in every bite.  In addition to supporting cheesemakers by purchasing their product, we'll donate an additional $10 from each box to our Covid-19 charity fund that is helping to support food related charities.

Each St. Kilian's Victory Cheese Box varies, but we'll select a range of 3-4 cheeses from some our favorite American producers and you'll receive 1 to 1.5 lbs of cheese in total, plus our Redcamper collaboration Mostarda.  If you have any special requests or omissions let us know in the notes on your order, and we'll do our best to accommodate.
 
In addition to getting delicious cheese, you'll also be supporting great producers during an especially challenging time. Together, let's step up to celebrate and support American cheese.

The Victory box is available now and can be ordered for shipping, pickup or delivery to with our new improved delivery service with scheduled deliveries 7 days a week and a larger area of coverage.
