As the name suggests, Jarcuterie is basically 'Charcuterie' in a jar. The word 'Charcuterie' is a French word that refers to a shop selling cold meat cuts. Charcuterie boards thus took this concept onto the dining table by creating a board filled with cheese, cured meats, nuts, dried fruits served with a variety of dips and spread. The platter serves as a delicious snack for guests at a party, with its unique aesthetic appeal and so much variety of food to choose from. The Jarcuterie takes the components and ingredients of a Charcuterie board and breaks it into a single-serving portion.

These beautifully decorated Jarcuteries are served to individuals, without the need for a community Charcuterie board; thus maintaining good hygiene and practicing social distancing. Apart from this, the Jarcuterie comprises lots of delicious miniature edibles such as tiny rolls of meat, berries, herbs, slices of cheese and nuts which are neatly stacked using toothpicks or tiny serving sticks.
