Bringing home the bacon ... and lots more besides

Charcuterie and company
A Festival of Cured Meats by QEDLondon
Friday 28, Saturday 29, Sunday 30 October, 11am – 8pm [6pm Sunday]
Southbank Centre Square, Belvedere Road, SE1 8XX

Qedchor This first ever celebration and exploration of the world of charcuterie will bring together a rich diversity of artisans, importers and enthusiasts. The best British traditions (some near forgotten) will be represented beside new-wave continentally-styled offerings, alongside the very finest hams, sausages and terrines from Europe that inspired them.

Whilst the pig will undoubtedly be the star of the show, beef, lamb, venison, duck and other alternative meats will also be on the menu. Browse over three dozen stalls, and buy to take home or feast on the spot.

A packed programme of free access tastings and workshops in the Event Tent will illuminate everything from the joys and toils of DIY home charcuterie, through the blood and guts of traditional puddings, to a comparison of cured bacons or matured hams. Which wines can take the cure? Which is finer — jamón Iberico bellota or culatello di Zibello? Or is Britain with its York and Suffolk Cure hams ahead of the pack?

Run by different chefs each day, our pop up restaurant, Intent2Eat, will offer annotated tasting platters showcasing different regional traditions — all accompanied by a well-chosen glass of wine — to enjoy socially at communal sheltered tables. And don’t miss Sunday’s Dog of the Year Show, crowning the hottest operators on the street food scene.

There will be something for everyone; charcuterie has ever ranged from working man staple to gourmet luxury.
