Charcuterie was introduced by the Romans, and evolved into a culinary art by the French. The word "charcuterie" is from the French chair cuite, meaning "cooked meats". It was originally used as the process to preserve meat, centuries before refrigeration, but the practicality as well as its delicious flavors account for its continued evolution and popularity

Charcuterie

First and foremost we pride ourselves on our charcuterie products.  We hand craft everything in house but the cheese.  Our "Pate de Campagne" is one of our most popular items.  Pork shoulder, liver, pistachios, and aromatics are ground, mixed, shaped and slowly poached to perfection.  Approriate in all seasons, in the summer serve it with some fresh pickled cherries or apricot chutney or in the winter with caramelized onions and walnuts.  Personally I wedge a generous slab between the heel of one of Monikas extra crusty baguettes for breakfast prior to most Saturday farmers markets. 


Salumerie

Drying sausages and making salume is a very long and delicate task.  some of our products take up to 12 weeks to prepare from start to finish.  Our ever evolving line of Saucisson Sec is our signature.  We believe the french have some tried and true knowledge on the subject of dried sausages, the fewer ingredients the better.  Esspelette Pepper, Provencal Herb, Garlic, Truffle or Peppercorn are some of my favourite saucisson sec that we make.  Simply good pork, sea salt, a delicate possibly seasonal flavouring ingredient and time.
