What is charcuterie? God, didn't you go to culinary school? Don't you know anything? For those who are truly missing out on one of life's great joys, charcuterie is a branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products. What kinds of meats? How about bacon, ham, sausage, terrines, galantines, ballotines, pâtés, and confit? Does that sound okay? What more could you possibly ask for. When assembled as part of a "charcuterie plate" or "charcuterie board," cheese, fruits, nuts, and other things join your chosen meat treats for an all around good time (learn more about what to put on your plate here). Maybe you will really go crazy and add some olives. That would really spice things up.The sausages and other meats in the charcuterie photos below will have your mouth watering and finally get you to abandon that vegetarian phase for good.
