Charcuterie in Vancouver has turned into such a beautiful trend that is here to stay! It is the perfect appetizer, drink/wine pairing, preliminary to dinner and much more for essentially any event. Originally, charcuterie was intended as a preservation method before the advent of refrigeration, but today they are prepared for their flavours derived from this preservation process. In Vancouver, our beautiful diverse city, we have had many variations to what a charcuterie board looks like. From a traditional charcuterie board, comprising of salt cured meats , pâtés and more to a Mediterranean inspired board with various dips, charcuterie boards can cater to essentially anyone’s preferences.
