Salami rose, decorative pear charcuterie tips from San Antonio’s The Board Couple

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio charcuterie expert, Bryan Gonzales of The Board Couple, show us how to make a salami rose and slice a pear to perfection. It’s Mike’s favorite thing - charcuterie!

Salami rose

What you’ll need:

  • Salami (a variety, if possible)
  • Champagne flute

How to make it:

Fold the salami over the rim of the champagne flute (as shown in the photo below). Turn the glass a little and add another. Keep going until you have a couple layers all the way around.

Flip the glass upside-down and place it on top of a slice of salami. This will be the base of your rose.

Hold the salami from the glass in place and lift the glass. You have a perfect salami rose!
