Five charcuterie boards to share

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Charcuterie – the art and craft of preparing meats and creamy pâtés – has been around a very long time. Centuries, in fact. While the name today evokes images of artisanal food experiences at upscale-casual bistros, the process was originally a very practical one: that of preserving meat in a time before there were refrigerators.

In restaurants, a charcuterie board is a composed combination of meat and cheese, bread or crackers, sauces and condiments (pepper jelly and grainy mustard are popular), and a pickle or two (red onions or cornichons fit the bill there).

Waterloo Region has many great charcuterie boards – on which kitchens combine local products to make delicious sharing.
