Food – savoury – Runner-Up 2020


by Valbella Gourmet Foods

Made in Canmore

$30 per kilogram

European bündnerfleisch has been a top seller at Canmore’s Valbella Gourmet Foods for the last 40 years. Valbella rubs the meat with a secret spice blend then salt-ages it for 30 days, smokes it and finally dries it for up to nine months. The resulting treat is like an alpine take on beef jerky, except better.
