Item: Carnivore Club Cured Meat Subscription
Price: $50 per box
Overall Impression: This is a great way to sample artisan cured meats from across the country.
Living in Europe exposed me to all the wonderful delights of cured meats, where they were not only easy to find, but usually fairly inexpensive. Back here in the States, more and more artisan producers are cropping up, but it's hard to sample a wide variety of them since they usually aren't as widely distributed as cheeses.
Carnivore Club, a monthly cured meat subscription, promises to "Satisfy Your Inner Carnivore" with handcrafted meats, so I gave it a try!
