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.
