Real Charcuterie

East Coast Cured is a family charcuterie business based in Leith, Edinburgh, specialising in the production of traditional, and contemporary, slow cured Scottish pork, beef, venison and poultry. We believe passionately that the true craft of curing means taking produce of the highest quality and with skill, patience and time, creating something truly exceptional for your plate.

How do we do it? Simple. We combine the best locally reared, high welfare meats with ingredients carefully sourced and selected for outstanding character and quality. Using methods from the best of European tradition we cut, smoke, cure and slow mature all of our products by hand in our workshop on Restalrig Road in Leith. We are very proud of our products and we would love you to come and try some for yourself.

Our salami is made using lean cuts from the leg and shoulder of the pig. The meat is ground and combined with finely diced back fat, selected for its smooth creamy texture and purity. Whole spices are toasted, cracked and ground immediately prior to use. Fresh garlic, a splash of wine and just the right amount of curing salts go in before our natural skins are hand stuffed, tied and hung to mature for a minimum of six weeks. Some of our salamis are traditional, some more contemporary. All are delicious.

Whole Cuts

From belly to back, shoulder, loin and cheek, we use every part of the pig to create a range of delicious meats for the kitchen and the plate. Our curing cellar is specially adapted to create the perfect conditions to slow cure these cuts to perfection. This can be anything from six weeks to well over a year. Pancetta, coppa, lomo, lonzino and guanciale. We love it all.

Other Beasts

Hanging alongside our salamis and whole cuts in our Leith curing cellar you will find Aberdeen Angus bresaola and duck prosciutto. We’re always developing exciting new recipes and seasonal specials using the best locally reared, high welfare produce.
