ENTERTAIN WITH A BEAUTIFUL CHARCUTERIE BOARD MADE LOCALLY
Ah, the charcuterie board–always plentiful, never boring. Filled with delightful selections, a charcuterie board features meats surrounded by foods that complement those meats, most commonly fruits, nuts, crackers, and dips. From the French chair for meat and cuit for cooked, charcuterie is simply the art of preserving meat. There are many talented artists who create these beautiful boards, boxes & more locally and we’d love for you to meet them. Here’s our list:
