Corfu Traditional Product: NoumbouloYour easy guide to the best holiday in Corfu Island
Noumboulo (from Venetian nombolo: loin) is a traditional charcuterie product of the Island of Corfu.
It is made from whole pork tenderloin, cured with salt and spices and marinated in wine.
It is then encased in natural intestine, usually together with a strip of fat, and smoked over a mixture of herbs, including sage, bay laurel, thyme, terebinth and myrtle.
It is consumed thinly sliced, usually on fresh bread.
Although it is enjoyed all year round, it is traditionally served as an hors d’oeuvre on Christmas and New Year’s days.
