Fromage, Charcuterie & Vin

Charcuterie boards, often known as charcuterie, are not a new concept. They have existed for hundreds of years. It wasn’t until lately that America succumbed to the fad.

Charcuterie is the intricate preparation and assembly of cured meats and other meat products. Recently, the word has come to refer to a range of meats served with various accompaniments, such as fruit, cheese, crackers, bread, sauces, nuts, and so on.

As one of the most excellent fine-dining establishments that serves all the meats and cheeses, we know precisely what goes into its preparation.

Many typical types of meat classified as charcuterie include capicola, salami, and prosciutto. In terms of charcuterie, dry-cured chorizo and mortadella are other popular meats.

Cheese is all about personal choice. It all boils down to what goes best with the meat on your plate. A traditional cheese board includes a range of cheeses.

Popular alternatives include aged cheddar and aged gouda. Cheeses such as Parmigiano-Reggiano and Gruyere are also suitable. There should always be contrasting cheeses so that each mouthful has a unique taste character.
