Bernardo Giuseppe Giovanni Carlo (‘Bernie’) Carano, Savino’s son, started making sausage at Piemonte Market when he was 15. Savino passed the unique family recipes and artisanal sausage making techniques to Bernie. The delicious sweet (mild), hot and breakfast sausages were a hit. They were preferred by fine cooks throughout the Detroit area. The sausages were one of the most popular items sold at Piemonte Market. They were eaten grilled, in spaghetti sauce and rustic stews.  Made from fresh pork with no fillers or preservatives, the sausages tasted like home to their paesani. Ultimately, the popularity of the sausage carried the store, supporting two families initially and then three when Bernie became a full partner after returning home from the US Navy following World War II
