Carnivore Club has really neat boxes. The box looks like a block of wood
There is a detailed information guide included that discusses each meat, their taste and a recommended wine. This month's meat is by Crested Duck Charcuterie.
Turkish Salami: This is a spicy salami with a taste from the middle east. My husband tried all the salami. He doesn't like really spicy food, but he really liked this salami. He said it had the perfect amount of spice.
Pairing recommendation: A robust beer.
Duck Breast Prosciutto: This was really rich in flavor and was really easy to chew. It had a sweet taste, with a slightly salty flavor. Carnivore Club recommends eating this with roasted asparagus, or a sharp green arugula salad.
Pairing Recommendation: Parmigiano-Reggiano
Mole Salami: This is a pork sausage that is cured, fermented and air dried. This has ancho chili powder made in it. C thought this was a bit difficult to chew and was too salty.
Pancetta Americano: This is a dry cured meat similar to bacon. This is seasoned pork belly. I cooked this up and it tasted amazing. It was really much better than bacon. I would love to have more of this.
Pairing Recommendation: White Wine.
Sweet Coppa: This is made from whole pork shoulder and seasoned with spices. This is cut very thin and it had a really nice mild flavor. Both C and I really liked this one.
Carnivore Club didn't include any pairing recommendations for this one.
The whole box
Final Thought: This was a great box. My favorite was the Pancetta Americano. It would make a great meat at breakfast. The Sweet Coppa was very mild and C is using it as a sandwich tomorrow. C really liked everything except the mole salami. If you like trying unique cured and smoked meats, check out Carnivore Club. Use the coupon boxmom to save $10.00 on your first box.
