Charcuterie with Friends

It’s that time of year again … autumn! Foodies, rejoice!

What says love for friends quite like a warm welcome, great food and drink? A charcuterie and wine gathering at Declaration Restaurant in Shaw is a fun, unique, and memorable way to kick off the season.

“But wait. I can barely spell ‘charcuterie’ — how do I know what goes with what?”

Fear not – you’re at Declaration! Our customers typically enjoy our yummy selection of cheeses, meats, crackers and olives while sipping wine from our Wine List, but charcuterie also pairs well with our artisanal handcrafted cocktails or a beer. Ask your server, he or she can guide you!

At Declaration Restaurant in Shaw, we choose the best in locally-sourced varieties of artisanal cured meats, sausages, and cheeses. Our charcuterie is most often accompanied with breads, pate, sweet and savory spreads (such as honey, apricot preserves, mustard), nuts, bit sized fresh and dried fruit and some pickled vegetables. Come see what chef has on the menu today!

Conventional charcuterie wisdom encourages red wines, and these can be a big hit. If you’re in the mood for white, consider a Prosecco to add to the festivities! Mild whites with less oak such as Sauvignon Blancs or Rieslings are great for the fall season and compliment our charcuteries well.

So experiment, listen to your tongue, and have fun! What suits one palate may not suit another, so mix and match to your heart’s content. Enjoy the new tastes, and the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make new ones at DC’s Declaration Restaurant in Shaw.
