Charcuterie isn’t just made with meat from pigs, as we well know. But what we often don’t know why producers choose to make certain cured meats in the way they do, and the meaning of natural charcuterie.

Cured meats made with beef, sheep or goat meat are often made to make pastoralism more profitable in marginal areas, adding an extra income stream beyond dairy products. Natural charcuterie, made without nitrites and nitrates but only with natural preservatives like salt, pepper, chili pepper, spices and smoke, are healthier for us, and reflect more respectful forms of animal husbandry which are particulalry mindful of the animals’ diets and life cycles.

In this workshop we’ll taste:

The accompanying breads are provided by bakers from the Slow Grains network.

To pair, the wines of Tremonti, la Colombera and Agricola Felline, as selected by the Wine Bank of Pollenzo Banca del Vino Pollenzo – Italy
