Making off-the-charts charcuterie
If a charcuterie platter is the star of the party, the star of any charcuterie platter is the cheese. Sure, technically, charcuterie is supposed to be a collection of cured meats like salami, prosciutto, chorizo, and smoked ham. But all alone on a platter, cured meats are just a one-note flavor profile. What charcuterie needs to make it shine is the creamy, nutty, tangy goodness of cheese. This meat-and-cheese duo, along with nuts, dried fruits, mustards, jams, and spreads, is what turns an ordinary party spread into a magical, culinary delight.
Here in Wisconsin, our off-the-charts charcuterie is made with selections of our award-winning artisan cheeses. Because just like macaroni and Wisconsin cheese or a great grilled Wisconsin cheese sandwich, Wisconsin cheese always takes something good and makes it great.
