Charcuterie #1

 

This is my first attempt at charcuterie.  I am most certainly not an expert, but give me a little time.  My first exposure to charcuterie was at the Rustic Goat in Anchorage (@rusticgoatak).

Meat:  choices  pickled asparagus wrapped in prosciutto piccante, Italian dry salami, peppered salami, Calabrese salami.  Cheeses:   Gruyere, Drunken Goat (goat cheese, rind treated with red wine), Stilton.  Misc: A medley of pickled olives, peppers, onions, stone ground mustard, dried figs.  Not shown: pepper water crackers and toasted baguette.

Beer: Denali Brewing Company (@denalibrewing) Agave Gold (#agavegold).  Visited the brewery and tasting room today.  Found everyone to be warm, knowledgeable and friendly. I will be stopping from now on every trip I make.  I would recommend you stopped and visited.

The desert, “Moose Droppings” from TheRoadhouse in Talkeetna, AK (@tkaroadhouse).

Special thanks my friend Pippa (@pscrogg88) for all her help and advice.
