You’re invited to a Cúrate Charcuterie Tasting Experience - basically, a “pica-pica” (snack time) moment in a box, with our charcuterie as the star! Our trio of craft Cúrate Charcuterie is the basis for this package, which begs to be enjoyed in a social setting. Take a bite of each tasty morsel, surrounded by friends and family, sipping along to great conversation and laughs. This tasting experience is the start to an evening with a convivial atmosphere that is easy on the host - no cooking required! The Cúrate Charcuterie Tasting Experience includes, Cúrate Sobrasada (spreadable chorizo), Cúrate Salchichón, and pimenton-forward Cúrate Chorizo, alongside a Spanish olive blend with garlic and herbs, fried and salted skin-on Marcona almonds, flatbread crackers and one of our signature 3-legged pig Cúrate toothpick holders made by Crazy Green Studios in Asheville’s River Arts District. Just like in Spain, toothpicks are the only utensil you’ll need to create a stellar “pica-pica” at home!

Cúrate began producing charcuterie in 2019 with in-depth research and develop of dry cured Spanish-style sausages in the restaurants. Over time, we dialed in recipes and found an incredible, regional source for our pork. Now, we produce small batches of Cúrate Chorizo, Salchichón and Sobrasada with a focus on quality and tradition. We begin with whole hogs, and butcher with the utmost care, separating types of fat and meat to create the perfect texture, using every part of the animal, then aging it to develop intense and complex flavor.
Local's Note: These products are available for purchase in Asheville at La Bodega by Cúrate!
Cúrate Salchichón | Subtle and mild, this staple of Catalonian cuisine is the sophisticate of the trio, with simple hints of black pepper and nutmeg. Here, you can taste the incredible quality, love and care that goes into Cúrate Charcutería. Best with: classic potato chips, olives, a movie.
Cúrate Chorizo | Along with jamon, Chorizo is one of the most iconic cured meats in Spain. Pimentón and garlic marry with white wine for a spark of acidity. Intense complexity develops as we age this product with great patience. Best with: pan con tomate and a soft boiled egg, breakfast of our dreams.
Cúrate Sobrasada | A 2023 Good Food Award Winner - Lovingly described as chorizo butter, our favorite part of this spreadable, melty Mallorcan delicacy is the tangy acidity that comes from the fermentation. Best with: a smear of goat cheese and drizzle of honey on a warm baguette.
If you’ve dined with us before, you may have noticed the small, ceramic pig toothpick holders on every table! A staple of tapas bars around the world, diners use the toothpicks to spear a piece of food from a shared plate. In Asheville, we couldn’t pass up the chance to engage one of our local potters to craft custom pig-shaped toothpick holders for Cúrate. Lori Theriault of Crazy Green Studios in the River Arts District makes every pig by hand. These pigs only have three legs - the fourth is the jamon! We are so happy guests are able to support our local art community while taking home this one-of-a-kind memento of their Cúrate experience.
The porrón is the classic communal way of drinking originating in Spain. This 1/2 L beautiful glass vessel turns sipping wine, beer or cider into a playful and shared experience. Imagine a group of friends gathered around, each holding a porrón. With a tilt and a steady hand, you pour wine directly into your mouth from a distance, it sparks laughter and friendly competition and transforms regular get-togethers into memorable and exciting moments, fostering a sense of togetherness and adventure. Beyond being a drinking vessel, the porron symbolizes the joy of shared experiences and adds a touch of novelty to any gathering. As they saying goes, when in Spain...
These exquisite, flavorful anchovies are hand-packed in Spanish olive oil according to traditional methods. They use carefully selected fresh fish harvested off the Cantabrian Coast in the north of Spain. Cantabrian anchovies are highly prized and renowned worldwide for their meatiness, smooth texture and intense taste. Arroyabe has been in the fish trade since 1898 when Rufino Arroyabe first began selling fresh fish.
In the Basque Country in late summer, the streets are adorned with drying espelette peppers. The Basque country spans the border between Northern Spain and France, touching the Pyrenees mountains. The bright and unmistakable red hue is a decoration for the region and its food. Spicewalla's flaked espelette pepper lends a smoky and sweet flavor and notes a mild hint of heat.
Using espelette pepper in cooking is fun and easy. Chef Katie Button loves to sprinkle it over grilled or roasted vegetables - like okra! Add it to sausages, in a rub for grilled meats, over eggs, in sauce or wherever a lightly smoky kick would flourish.
Along with jamon, Chorizo is one of the most iconic cured meats in Spain. Pimentón and garlic marry with white wine for a spark of acidity. Intense complexity develops as we age this product with great patience. Best with: pan con tomate and a soft boiled egg, breakfast of our dreams.
