In simple terms, charcuterie is the preservation or cookery of meat, often referring to pork. At our shop, we've carried products like Guanciale, Lardo, Prosciutto, Pate, Speck, Bresaola, Coppa, Soppresata, and various other Salumi - all ready-to-eat products perfect for any antipasti or charcuterie platter. We try to focus on charcuterie producers who use meat from humanely raised animals and who employ traditional handcrafted practices.
In our meat case, we have featured domestically-produced charcuterie from Alle-Pia Fine Cured Meats (California), Surry Farms (Virginia), Olympic Provisions (Oregon), Salumeria Biellese (New York), Creminelli Fine Meats (Utah), La Quercia (Iowa), Fra'Mani Handcrafted Foods (California), Niman Ranch (California), Fabrique Delices (California) and Columbus Salame (California), among others, as well as a handful of imported products like Italian Prosciutto and Spanish Lomo Iberico. If you are looking for something particular, please call the shop to ask a cheesemonger.
