Boat Box Charcuterie


Charcuterie refers to a type of food that includes cured or smoked meats, such as salami, prosciutto, and bacon, as well as other savory items like pâté, terrines, and cheese. The word “charcuterie” comes from the French term for a shop that specializes in these types of foods.

A charcuterie board is a popular way to serve a variety of cured meats and other snacks as a casual, yet elegant appetizer or snack platter. The board typically includes an assortment of cured meats, such as salami, prosciutto, and chorizo, as well as different types of cheese, crackers, bread, fruits, and nuts. The ingredients are arranged artfully on a wooden board or platter, often with additional garnishes like olives, pickles, or honey.

Charcuterie has a long history in Europe, where curing and smoking meats was a way to preserve food before refrigeration. Today, charcuterie is enjoyed all over the world as a delicious and sophisticated way to indulge in a variety of flavorful foods.
