West Virginia Public Broadcasting

Pepperoni rolls have been called the unofficial food of West Virginia. Legend has it they were originally made for coal miners to take underground in their dinner buckets- because the cured pepperoni didn’t spoil. 

A new book ABOUT Pepperoni Rolls is set to be published next year. On this week's episode of Inside Appalachia Roxy Todd talks with the writer of this new book to learn more.
