In the world of specialty foods, charcuterie is the latest trend that is front and center in Los Angeles. If you have never heard of charcuterie before, it is French for cooked flesh. It is most commonly known as a plate of cold, cooked meats. Before it became a staple of specialty foods, it was a way to preserve meats before refrigeration. Now, there is a style of cooking solely devoted to prepared cured meat products, that unleashes the flavors that make you come back for more.
