Charcutepalooza! January 20, 2011Posted by inspiredbywolfe in Uncategorized.
When I first saw notice of this on twitter, I was certain I wanted to participate: Charcutepalooza! Charcutepalooza is the brainchild of two bloggers, and is a year-long project to share experiences around creating charcuterie. Each month, two challenges will be posted, one for those just starting out and another for those with a bit more charcuterie experience. Recipes are taken from Ruhlman and Polcyn’s Charcuterie, and you can also follow along on twitter using the #charcutepalooza hashtag.
I’ve missed the first month’s challenge, duck prosciutto – both because I was too late to begin, and also because I don’t have anywhere to hang meat – but will definitely be participating in February’s challenge – to make bacon (again, I’d love to try pancetta but don’t have anywhere to let it cure!). One day I will make duck prosciutto!
Anyway, if you are interested in participating or at least following along – there’s a lot of activity on twitter – follow the charcutepalooza hashtag and take a look at the website! If you do want to participate, I believe you can still sign up until February 1.
