Charcuterie is a word that has entered my personal lexicon rather recently. I always just called it that thing my grandparents gave my parents at Christmas time. I never knew it had an actual name, and a fancy one at that.

A Charcuterie Workshop In Amarillo

I always thought that charcuterie was basically some crackers, tiny cheese squares, and some thin sliced or cubed meat. I never once imagined that something like charcuterie would warrant having a whole workshop.

You learn something new everyday.

Doing some digging, I found out that a lot of these types of workshops teach you how to make your own in how to pair all of the different snacks. It would be interesting to learn how to match the savory and sweet flavors with the right cheeses and meats to create flavor combos.

All in all, it doesn't sound like a bad time if you're into snacks.

A Fun Night Out For The Ladies

While personally intrigued by the art of charcuterie, this "Mom and Me" event might be one I leave to the wife. I'm sure she'll have a lot of fun, and I can sit at home watching YouTube tutorials, drinking a cold beer while learning the sacred art of charcuterie.
