Our founder, Salvatore Cicero, would drive across London to bring these specialities to peoples homes which later expanded into restaurants and gourmet shops shortly after. The cheeses came from small farmhouse producers in Sicily and the products were often seasonal. Sebastiano, one of the current founders, explains, 'we wanted to bring only the best regional and authentic ingredients to the UK.'
Today, online, these products are not yet available and it's incredibly hard to find authentic products that have truly been sourced from regional parts of Italy. Most are now mass produced in places such as Germany and Netherlands. This is not part of Cicero's ethos.
Ciceros' small and passionate team continue to run the business from the Cicero Delicatessen branch and warehouses in North London, with the same purchasing philosophy at heart by travelling to mainland Italy, in search of more high quality and artisan produce.
We wil soon offer an extensive product range, which maintains a balance between the classics; Parmigiano Reggiano, numerous Prosciutti di Parma, outstanding Gorgonzola Dolce, sought after 100% buffalo milk Mozzarella di Bufala, Burrata and the more specialist niche.
Introducing other artisan products such as fresh white and black Truffles, Porcini, Morels, Chantarrels, Pecorino Toscano DOP, Parmigiano Reggiano, Burrata, Riso Vialone Nano IGP, Parmacotto Salumi, Piacenti Tuscan Salumi, Galloni Prosciutti, Pasta di Gragnano, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and many more to your delight.
Cicero's will ensure products are officially protected under European Union regulations for DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) and IGP (Indicazione Geografica Protetta).
