Meat? Cheese? Home Delivery? Enter Charcuterie Me

One night while waiting at a restaurant for her charcuterie board, Nai Zhao had a realization. She wasn’t the only person passionate about charcuterie, and surely she wasn’t the only person that would jump at the chance to have gourmet cheeses, cured meats, pickled vegetables, crackers, and fresh fruit delivered directly to their doorstep.

Prices range from $11 each for “selfie” handheld charcuterie cones to $149 for charcuterie platters for 12 people.
