New York Epicurean Events, AgriForaging Food Safety, The Meat Market, Fire Roasted Catering, and The Salt Cured Pig are proud to present the 2nd Annual Charcuterie Masters competition to be held at historic Flushing Town Hall on February 25, 2017.
Charcuterie Masters is the first ever competition of its kind and brings together more than a dozen professional and amateur makers of artisanal charcuterie, including Nduja Artisans, Caseiro E Bom, The Meat Market, Heather Ridge Farm and Queens' very own Ridgewood European Pork Store.
Charcuterie Masters is so much more than a contest, it's a celebration of Meaty Times where guests will be able to sample exquisite cured meats and salumi—includings hams, bacons, pates, and sausages—from charcutiers, including Caseiro E Bom and The Meat Market, as well as dishes from top New York City chefs.
Guests will have an opportunity to savor charcuterie, learn from the makers as well participate in a people’s choice vote of the ‘best-of-the-evening’ charcuterie. Pairings will include top-rated wines, craft beers, and farmstead ciders. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase charcuterie directly at the event.
A $60 general admission ticket entitles guests to explore unlimited tasting and sampling of all food and beverages.
Additionally, there will be $100 VIP tickets sold, which will allow access to a special hour from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. enabling VIP guests to enjoy early access to the entire festival as well as admission to the VIP tasting room, featuring a luxurious spread of cured meats, including headcheese and other charcuterie personally prepared by NYEE president, Chef David Noeth, as well as exclusive charcuterie selections from Queens’ very own Muncan Food and a selection of fine NY cheeses curated by The Cheese and Dairy Society of New York State.
