The dinner blew my guests away. It also told a story. The photos made it, barely. And the charcutepalooza experience was an initiation ritual, taking me from mere observer into a new world of meaty knowledge and appreciation.
Food and language are necessary parts of all cultures. I am an anthropologist and linguist who also loves to make all kinds of food. Currently, I am a Charcutepalooza participant. I'm always learning and that's why I'm here.
