What is Charcuterie?
The French word for pork-butcher, charcuterie (pronounced “shahr-ku-tuh-ree”) is the traditional art of preparing and assembling cured meats. Charcuterie-style meat and cheese boards have become very popular, and the concept has evolved to include an assortment of cheeses, artisan bread, olives, fruit, and nuts. No matter what types of foods are included, the key element of all charcuterie boards is that they should be artfully arranged for an attractive presentation.
