Charc Week: Cooking with Charcuterie

Charcuterie is often served cold. It’s the simplest way to go. A board spread with cheeses and cured meats along with a bottle of wine. Instant party.

However, charcuterie can be used in recipes. Think bacon. Yes, bacon is charcuterie. Smoked, cured and cooked meats all fall into the category. Sausages, too. So you already cook with charcuterie.

Here are a few of our favorite charcuterie recipes. Get cooking and enjoy 15% off all charcuterie during Charc Week at dartagnan.com.
