Charcuterie 101: A Tasty Recap

On Saturday, we were pleased to host Charcuterie 101 for the Food Network’s New York Wine & Food Festival. Held in the intimate, cavernous wine cellar at Macelleria in the Meatpacking District, Charcuterie 101 brought together les deux Pierres – our own, Pierre Moreira and one of our favorite NY chefs, Pierre Landet, of Cercle Rouge, for an introduction to the art of preserving meat.  Both native Frenchman grew up in the Southwest of France (about 30 miles away from each other, actually!) where charcuterie is another stitch in the fabric of the good life. The event drew a diverse crowd of food lovers who all seemed to enjoy the meaty spread and convivial atmosphere. Macelleria’s brilliant staff kept the wine flowing while Pierre M. waxed on about curing basics and Chef Landet expertly demonstrated how to make a galantine (ok, not exactly 101 but we had some pretty advanced pupils!). The day was a great success & we hope to participate again next year. Until then… here are some photos. Enjoy!
