What is charcuterie food?

Long before refrigerators were invented, humans had to preserve their meat. This was done by curing or drying meats to prevent bacteria from spoiling them. Salt is another staple to charcuterie, as it's the world's oldest preservative. Today, charcuterie encompasses any meat that has been cured in the traditional way. Charcuterie food typically consists of meats and cheeses, along with accouterments or additional sides such as crackers, bread, jams, and fresh or dried fruit. Common charcuterie meats include:

  • Pâtés

  • Sausage

  • Galantines

  • Terrines

  • Salami

  • Confit

  • Crèpinettes

  • Ballotines

Tasty charcuterie cheeses include:

  • Sharp cheddar

  • Gouda

  • Brie

  • Burrata

  • Gruyère

  • Camembert

Accoutrements you can never go wrong with include:

Is charcuterie an appetizer?

At most restaurants, especially farm-to-table, you'll typically find charcuterie boards on the appetizer menu.
