Hailing from Salt Lake City, Salumist, Eli Cairo grew up first generation Greek-American with a father who made charcuterie at home. Doing things the old-fashioned way was commonplace. Eli later journeyed to Europe to apprentice in the kitchens of masters. It was there that he rediscovered the art of curing meat.
Upon returning to the states Eli found himself in Oregon after some convincing from his sister and business partner, Michelle, where he set out to approach the craft of charcuterie with purity and patience, recreating a nearly extinct traditional technique that is seldom seen in America.
Today Eli is the founder Olympia Provisions, Oregon’s first USDA-approved salumeria, and six additional restaurants.
