Born in a city where the food is as diverse as the people and their culture, the rich and flavorful muffuletta (pronounced moof-u-letta) delights and surprises all who taste it. Originally created in New Orleans, the word muffuletta derives from an old Sicilian word "muffa", which describes a large, round, dense bread that is stuffed with assorted meats and cheeses. The muffuletta also contains delectable Gambino's Italian Olive Salad, without which the ideal sandwich is not complete.
Gambino's Italian olive salad, whose main ingredients are the green olives which we import from the coast of Spain and Sicily, contains the freshest of vegetables, from celery and cauliflower to carrots and black olives. Top this exquisite olive salad over layers of ham, salami, and provolone cheese to create this savory treat known as the muffuletta. As for the foundation of this immense yet easily portioned sandwich is the muffuletta bread itself. The bread originates with a very traditional Italian bread making process that forms a soft dense interior surrounded by a golden brown crust covered with sesame seeds.
