Where Art Meets Food

Charcuterie (shar-KOO-ta-REE) Boards are all the rage these days and deservedly so.  Steeped in centuries old tradition, charcuterie is enjoying a renaissance as today’s boards represent ‘art meets food’.

Charcuterie is a French term devoted to prepared meat products, originally intended as a way to preserve meat before the advent of refrigeration.  In addition to a wide array of meats, you’ll also find an assortment of cheeses, fruits, artisan breads and crackers, olives, and spreads like honey, preserves or jams.

Today, they are prepared for their beautiful art forms as much as they are for pleasing the palate.  No matter the occasion, Charcuties (the term for those who prepare charcuteries) impress and delight us with their unique and flavorful creations.

Locally, we have well-seasoned, talented Charcuties who have changed the way we graze.
