Charcuterie (shar-koo-tuh-ree) refers to the preparation and preservation of meat products, typically from pork, but also from other animals such as beef, lamb, and game meats. The term “charcuterie” comes from the French word “chair” (flesh) and “cuit” (cooked).

Charcuterie products can include cured meats such as bacon, ham, salami, and prosciutto, as well as pâtés, terrines, and rillettes. These products are often seasoned with spices and herbs, and can be served as appetizers, snacks, or as part of a larger meal.

In recent years, charcuterie boards have become popular for entertaining and social gatherings. A charcuterie board typically includes a variety of cured meats, cheeses, fruits, nuts, and crackers or bread, arranged in an aesthetically pleasing way on a board or platter. The board can be customized to suit individual tastes and preferences.
