Menu for the Week of May 12, 2014- The Art of Charcuterie
At The Spotted Trotter, the art of charcuterie is something we take seriously. And that means everything comes into its own when it is ready, even though we may be crossing our fingers and praying it will happen sooner. Believe me, we want to sell you Good Meat! The life cycle of a hard salumi may take weeks of preparation and drying time, sometimes even longer than we think when humidity is not constant or other factors beyond our control decide to take their turn. Even bacon takes 10 days of curing- that unbelievable sorghum cracked black pepper cure has to do its magic! We hand butcher all of our meats and produce our salumis in small batches, which allows us to give lots of attention to everything we make and focus on our technique.
If you haven’t been to The Spotted Trotter in a while, we have missed you. And if you don’t see that 1 particular salumi you have been craving, know it is hanging in our new curing cave waiting for you! Try something new. Go on, I promise we will not disappoint!
Stay Hungry, Atlanta!
