Maker Of Bamboo Charcuterie Board And Knife Set Roots To Table Shares Blog Recommending Five Select Meats
Roots To Table is encouraging its customers to check out an article from the food-centric blog Foodness Gracious which presents the five best types of meats that are a perfect match for its charcuterie-style meat and cheese boards.
Foodness Gracious is penned by a stay-at-home dad who says he has a serious passion for food that spills over into articles in categories such as baking, cooking, cooking basics, and cooking for the family. The writer begins the blog post about the five best types of meats suitable for charcuterie boards by saying, “Whether I’m having company over for a holiday feast or game day party, I always put out a well-stocked charcuterie meats platter. It’s an easy way to keep guests happy while I’m busy in the kitchen or getting drinks ready. I start with a good mix of meat and cheese and add in some olives, fruit, nuts, and crackers, so there’s a little something for everyone. The secret to a crowd-pleasing charcuterie meats board is to balance out taste, texture, and flavor. From velvety prosciutto to spicy calabrese, I like to serve five types of meat that complement each other perfectly on the platter. Served with a few good high-quality pieces of cheese and some bread and crackers, my guests always love this satisfying combo.”
The blog post first begins with some tips on general items, cheeses, and wines that can be added to or paired with a charcuterie board. The blog post recommends adding items such as small bowls of olives, pickles, honey, jam, nuts, and fresh fruit to a platter to add variety. When it comes to cheeses, the blog post recommends adding at least one or two soft cheeses and one or two hard cheeses to the platter. 3 to 4 ounces of cheese per person is ideal. The writer also recommends a particular red wine and a particular white wine from his personal favorites. The writer recommends two ounces of meat per person and thawing it 30 minutes before serving to have it reach room temperature.
Of the five types of meat selected, the first one, Soppressata is a dry salami that comes from the Calabria, Vicenza, and Tuscany regions of Italy. Soppressata is typically made from fresh pork, but it can also be made with beef. Calabrese salami is a pork sausage that was named after a region in Southern Italy, Calabria, known for its spicy cuisine. Spicy red pepper flakes are incorporated into the ground pork meat along with other spices, and the flavored meat is stuffed into a casing and hung in a curing chamber for a few weeks. Third, Mortadella is the original version of bologna hailing from Bologna, Italy. It is a large round sausage studded with white pork fat and pistachio pieces. Fourth, Prosciutto is an uncooked, dry-cured Italian ham. Prosciutto has a rosy color, marbled with streaks of flavorful white fat. It’s typically sliced paper-thin and melts in the mouth. Fifth, Genoa salami, originating in the Genoa region of Italy, is made with ground pork or veal and mixed with white wine, garlic, salt, and whole white peppercorns.
