Charcuterie plate

This plate is generally a spread of cured or smoked meats with any variety of pickled or preserved fruits and vegetables and toasted bread or crackers as a vessel. Intended as a shared plate before a meal, it goes best with wine or an aperitif to get things started off. What to put on the plate is completely up to you but here is what we have chosen at Chüps.


  • Duck Liver Mousse
  • Duck Confit
  • Lusty Monk Mustard
  • House made pickles
  • Cornichon pickles
  • Preserved sweet peppers
  • Pepperoncini
  • Drunken Goat cheese
  • Manchego cheese
  • Mahon cheese
  • Toasted Cuban bread


Use this as a template for you own charcuterie board but explore for yourself to find combinations of sweet, salty, sour, and savory that suit you best.
