Find Out How Easy it Can be to Cook with Charcuterie

Charcuterie is the cornerstone of a good life. This French word refers to any meat product that is smoked, cured or cooked. Familiar items like bacon, sausage, ham, and salami would all fit in this category, as would pâté, confit, and terrine. You can eat many types of charcuterie right from the package, or use them as starring ingredients when cooking. These 5 simple recipes with charcuterie are comfort food classics you’ll crave.
