Charcuterie & Cheese 101

Charcuterie & Cheese 101

We are very fortunate to be able to work with a lot of different people throughout the state & from time to time we get to have new adventures and experiences.  This week was one of those times.  We attended a Charcuterie & Cheese Tasting. 
 
 
 
It was really great for us because several of the meats used in the charcuterie were from Wild Turkey Farms.  It was also a chance to educate ourselves not only in the art of charcuterie but cheese.
 
 
There were 6 different tasting pairs.  In the picture above they  are from left to right.

Tasting Pair 1
The Cheese-  Pawlet: raw cow's milk
Consider Bardwell Farm, West Pawlet, VT

The Meat- Coppa


Tasting Pair 2
The Cheese- Tomme: cow & goat's milk
Three Graces Dairy, Marshall, NC

The Meat- Fiocco
Pork provided by Wild Turkey Farms

Tasting Pair 3
The Cheese- Bayley Hazen: raw cow's milk
Jasper Hill Farm, Greensboro, VT

The Meat- Speck
Pork provided by Wild Turkey Farms

Tasting Pair 4
The Cheese- Prairie Breeze Cheddar: cow's milk
Milton Creamery, Milton, IA

The Meat- Soppressata
Pork provided by New Town Farms, Waxhaw, NC

Tasting Pair 5
The Cheese- Pleassant Ridge Reserve: raw cow's milk
Uplands Cheese Co., Dodgeville, WI

The Meat- Culatello
Pork provided by Carolina Heritage Farms, Pamplico, SC

Tasting Pair 6
The Cheese- Chevre: goat's milk
Fishing Creek Creamery, Chester, SC

The Meat- Nduja

*****
Everything was delicious!!  The Speck was one of my favorites.  I also liked the Nduja which was described as a fiery hot, spreadable salame.
 
As for the cheese,  I love Chevre & also really liked the Pawlet.
 
Orrman's is located in the 7th Street Market in Charlotte so check them out.
