What is a Charcuterie Plate?

And how do you pronounce it?  (char·cu·te·rie)

Charcuterie is, according to Webster, “a delicatessen specializing in dressed meats and meat dishes.”

For several years we have seen charcuterie boards and plates on menus at our favorite restaurants from NYC to Main Street. So while the GOWHIMSEY team was brainstorming for our catalog photo shoot, we thought of creating a charcuterie and cheese plate for our new ceramic Everyday 2016 rectangle platter.

According to Chris and Steve at the Livewell Network site the combination of dried meats and cheese is a perfect go-to appetizer and get this…NO COOK!  Now that is something we love for summer days in the South!  At http://livewellnetwork.com/Steven-and-Chris/episodes/Charcuterie-and-Cheese-Plate-101/8472341 they give a great shopping list to create this appetizer that fits our rectangle platter perfectly.
