What is Charcuterie?

Let's start back at the basics before we get too far ahead of ourselves. What is charcuterie and why is it so popular all of the sudden? Charcuterie is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, such as bacon, ham, sausage, terrines, galantines, ballotines, pâtés, and confit. It also refers to foods usually served as hors d'oeuvres or first courses. The word "charcuterie" comes from the French word chair which means "flesh" and cuiture which means "cooking". These boards have become increasingly popular in recent years as people of all ages and backgrounds design beautiful arrangements for all occasions.

Charcuterie boards are all the rage right now thanks to Instagram and Pinterest. They make for beautiful photos and are a delicious way to entertain guests. But let's be honest - they can be time-consuming and expensive to put together... unless you have Platterful!

Why waste your time (and your hard-earned cash) going from grocery store to grocery store to find everything you need for your box, only to have no idea how to put together a board like your mother-in-law does on Instagram. Platterful has you covered! We do all the hard work for you - from sourcing unique, artisanal products to providing easy-to-follow instructions.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up today and get your charcuterie on with a Platterful Charcuterie Kit.

What Can a Charcuterie Kit be Used For?

All new educational content is included too because every box is different! So go ahead and subscribe today! Bon appétit!

P.S. Don't forget the wine! ; ) We'll help you out with this too though because in every crate we include a "Pairs Well With" section that highlights which adult beverage you should be enjoying with your box.

What Meats and Cheeses Pair Best on a Charcuterie Board?

That's why Platterful offers educational content in every one of their charcuterie kits. That means both written and video content.
