Five of the best charcuterie platters
Charcuterie is a French term essentially translating to ‘cooked meat’. The best plates include cured deli products full of delicious smoky flavours, from sausages and hams to savoury pate and cheese, to antipasto – all hard to resist served together on a tasting board.
Peacock and Jones
Located in the historic buildings lining the Hobart waterfront, Peacock and Jones offer a plate which would be great as a starter for two or as a small meal. With three changing styles each night, it is served with house-made pickle, guandilla peppers and Pigeon Whole sourdough and rye for $19.
