Since ancient times, cured meat and fish have provided a vital source of year-round sustenance. Plus, they’re delicious. From gravlax and charcuterie to duck confit and Serrano ham, an impressive array of dry-cured, wet-cured, salt-cured, and smoke-cured ingredients will be on the menu at this culinary collaboration among top Berkshire chefs.
