Chicken and cheese pasta, chickpeas, charcuterie,. Complimentary
United Club, George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH)
This was one of the best food offerings at a United Club that I’ve seen in the States so far. The chicken pasta was really tasty, and of course I had my share of complimentary wine, hehe!
Assortment of cheeses and select cured meats accompanied by vegetables, nuts and dried fruit. Served with bread. $15
Villa San-Juliette, San Miguel CA
This was a straight forward meat and cheese plate, but everything on it was pretty tasty. I would have appreciated more variety in the meats to balance out the kinds of cheeses.
Cured meats, toasted crostini, raw and pickled vegetables, sage white bean spread. $12.30
Niagara Brewing Company, Niagara Falls CANADA
This charcuterie board was such a great value! This would have cost more in the States. I liked all the meats, and the veggies were delicious too. This was a great board to eat with all the yummy beer!
Duck prosciutto, beef bresaola, mortadella, speck, norcino salami with sangiovese wine, orange scented mustard, roasted shallot-dried blueberry jam. Small $15
Barboursville Vineyards, Barboursville VA
I actually liked this charcuterie board and appreciated that they were home made. However, I’m going to repeat myself – the service here is despicable. It was a while since I visited and am finally getting around to posting, but that just goes to show that I still remember vividly how rude and bitchy the server was. She certainly knew how to ruin my time at Barboursville Vineyards, and I will forever remember.
Assortment of salumi, cheese, and condiments. RW Deal, $35 per person
Ambar, Washington DC
This was good. It was on the basic side and there wasn’t a lot of anything, but I still liked the flavor of the meats.
Selection of four meats served with marinated olives. €16
Nessun Dorma, Manarola ITALY
This charcuterie board was pretty epic! There was SO much meat, and all of them were very tasty. If only my stomach was bottomless, hehe!
Bellota cured ham, Iberian “chorizo”, and Iberian sausage. €14.90
La Taverna del Born, Barcelona SPAIN
I loved this charcuterie plate! The meats were all delicious, and there was plenty of it. I would order this again in a heartbeat.
Smoked duck prosciutto, salami, pork terrine. $15
Hamlet, San Francisco CA
This charcuterie plate was lovely. I liked that they included duck which isn’t standard for charcuterie boards. I also liked the thinness of the slices. The condiments and hazelnuts were also great accompaniments. Mmm…
Selection of prepared meats, jam, nuts and fruit. $18
Lark, San Francisco CA
This was a decent charcuterie board. The salumi weren’t anything different or special, but they tasted good enough and they at least provided four different kinds. They should have served more toasted baguette slices though.
A selection of house cured salumi inspired by traditional Piemontese recipes. Salame nostrano, salame finocchiona, lonza, coppa, lardo de cavour, testa, duck pate and rillettes. $19
Perbacco, San Francisco CA
Came here with some friends and had to suggest that they try this charcuterie plate. I loved it the first time I had it, and they really enjoyed it too. Perbacco certainly knows how to make delicious salumi!

Full assortment of cured meats and artisanal cheeses served with warm focaccia, pickled vegetables and organic Opolo walnuts. $28
Opolo Vineyards, Paso Robles CA
This charcuterie and cheese board was wonderful and worked great with their wines at Opolo. It was very relaxing to sit on their patio and sip wine and have a midday snack.
Blue cheese sauce, pancetta, shishito pepper, potato, parmesan. Happy hour $9
Carpe Diem Wine Bar, Napa CA
Mmm, this flatbread was delicious! I’m not totally sold on the addition of the shishito peppers though – they didn’t quite fit to me. The blue cheese sauce was yummy though and the other toppings worked well together.
Inkberry cabernet sauvignon. Happy hour $6
