09 Jan Unconventional Ideas for Enjoying Catalan Fuet: Tartar Fuet Olmeda Orígenes

The Fuet Tartar is the viral appetizer of the moment, perfect for surprising your guests and enjoying a delicious meal.

Before delving into the fascinating recipe for fuet tartare, it’s valuable to know the origin of this Catalan cured sausage. Fuet, a variant of longaniza, has its roots in Catalonia, a region rich in gastronomic traditions.


The Olmeda Orígenes Catalan Fuet Factory in Barcelona is a testament to authenticity and craftsmanship in sausage production. With just two machines, the process is carried out with dedication and extreme care. High-quality pork, deboned by hand every Friday, serves as the foundation for their fuet.

The fat is meticulously cut according to the IGP VIC regulations. After resting over the weekend, the meat is mixed with pepper, fat, and salt in precise proportions, utilizing a vacuum system to optimize maturation.

The maturation process, conducted in a chamber with controlled temperature and humidity, is essential. The presence of natural molds contributes to the distinctive whitish color of the fuet. The Olmeda Orígenes Catalan Fuet matures for two months. This commitment to quality and artisanal tradition is reflected in every step of the process, making these cured sausages unique and exceptional products.
