"I received a day's Charcuterie course for my birthday and what a day it was! Evebrything from butchering half a pig to the curing, drying, recipes, mincing and hilarious salami making. A fantastic local produce lunch was provided too. We were sent away with a pancetta kit to make at home (including a large cut of belly that we butchered earlier) and our salami and chorizo will be sent on when it is ready. Totally awesome and highly recommended."
Jon M Chamberlian

"The course brilliant, far exceeded my expectations. Andy and James were brilliant, their knowledge on the subject was exceptional. The meats they are producing are beautiful and it is no surprise that they are growing so quickly. It is truly some of, if not the best Charcuterie I have ever tasted. The course fills you with the confidence you need to get home and give it a go. It was a great day and I cannot thank you guys enough. Kind Regards Matt B"

"A unique course, I have been on many cookery courses and this is one of the best in terms of content from butchery to a sausage ready to hang. Learn some special skills which are not easy to obtain from the WEB."

"My birthday present from my wife this year was a charcuterie workshop and I can safely say it was probably the best foodie course I have attended. Ratio of attendees to instructors was generous which meant there was always an expert you could quietly ask that 'stupid' question!"
Mark Gibbins

"A great day learning the traditional way of preserving, and how to adapt it to the modern pallette."
Submitted on Survey Monkey by somebody attending our November Charcuterie Making Course

"James and Andy are very keen to share their knowledge and experience of charcuterie. The lunch was very good, the course informative and enjoyable. They do what they do very well and the end product is testimony to their passion and dedication. I'd do the course every weekend if I could!"
Submitted on Survey Monkey by somebody attending our November Charcuterie Making Course

"A very informative day. Andy and James are both very passionate and knowledgeable about charcuterie and clearly take great pride in their top-quality approach to their products. The learning is very hands-on with everyone actively engaged. There was plenty of products to taste as part of the lovely lunch and lots of laughter throughout the whole experience."

"Fantastic gifts for foodies"
James & Andy, Somerset Charcuterie founders

"I think I bought up most of your stock at the Game fair - for which I'm not apologising for, as what I'm enjoying right this minute is the best Coppa I've ever had the pleasure of eating - so, THANKYOU!"
Katie Elliot

"5 star products using 5 star ingredients for 5 star gourmands!!"
Sue Wynne
"Love this range of Charcuterie! Spicy chorizo with smoked paprika is definitely my favourite - brilliant on it's own and also adds lovely flavour to lots of tasty meals."
Holly Callow
"Bought some yesterday (wednesday) at Wells Market, chorizo and the one that has blue cheese in it?! Hardly got any left after I brought them out at the pub back in london! Come to Greenwich."
Richard Mangan
"I bought a chunk of your coppa at Blackheath last weekend - delicious!."
Richard Mangan

"I just wanted to give my feedback on your fantastic products. My wife and I found you at Taste of London last Friday and purchased a Garlic salami a red wine and cheese and some of the spicy salami all of which we adored. In fact so much so that my wife returned on Sunday to get more supplies! Keep up the great work."
Chris Morley

"Nice to meet you in Ilminster today. Your products are superb. We've eaten salami and cured meats all over the continent and yours are amongst the best. It was an easy choice for my daughter to choose my, now early, Father's Day pressie ! Went down surprisingly well with a couple of glasses of red sitting in the sunshine ! French markets - who needs them! All the very best with a fantastic range of products."
Steven Yates

We met Russell in the market in wells on Saturday week. We did purchase some of your products. My wife is from the Basque Country (Bilbao), and she introduced me to Chorizo's other Spanish Cured meats. We have to give you 9 out of 10 for your products which were amazing. Especially the Cured Somerset Duck Thin Slices. Good luck to you all.
Lolita and Norman Miles Judd




"Hi - just wanted to tell you that my husband and I visited the market on Saturday (1st time) and had a fabulous morning. We loved your stall and tried a number of your products - all of which were brilliant."
Claudia McDonald

I treated myself to a generous sized salami with wild garlic at the last Frome Market (you didn't have my favourite lamb salami). I have to say your cured meats are as good as any I have tried in France, Spain and Italy. Look forward to seeing you next month.
Mike Bell

"I bought one of your Somerset cider, sage and mustard salamis (for £10) in Wells market last Wednesday. It is quite the most delicious thing I have ever tasted. We also tasted a red wine and Draycott Blue poker, which was also delicious and I wish I’d bought one. I’ve had XXXXXXXXX's things, and they are good, but yours are much more exciting, complex flavours."
Jenny Henderson

"Mother's day prezzie sorted. bloody lovely!"
Tom Ware

I just wanted to send you a quick message to say what a pleasure it was to discover your company and exciting range of produce at the Bristol Foodies Festival. We are definitely foodies and as we spend a lot of time in South West France, are very familiar with all the salamis and dried meat options available there. We just think it is so innovative to use the Somerset flavours to make your range of produce - a really clever idea and very delicious. We bought a couple of your products on the day and will definitely be ordering online in the future. With best wishes,
Georgette and Brian Harries

"Delighted to find your stall and excellent products at Wells market today. With the summer sun and your super sausage I was able to re-create a Mediterranean-style alfresco lunch today. Keep it up guys, and you will win a great following."
Alan Butt Phillip

"I love, love, love these. Had a bunch when we were visiting for Christmas and this is honestly some of the best cured meats I've tasted. That means a lot coming from a Kansas girl!"
Melanie Coffee Hesselberg

"I've had the pleasure of trying quite a few of the different chorizo sausages they produce. All of them pack big full flavours and are balanced well by the more subtle flavours in the background. The Somerset Pork with Cider are my current favourite. Delicious!
James Hosford

"Wow amazing. think we bought 4 different types 3 gone in less than one hour of purchase. favourite red wine and blue cheese, unfortunately children's too so didn't get a lot."
Megan Cox

"Good to see you at Wells market................fantastic chorizo!"
John Millbank

When I first tasted your saucisson a year ago I thought it was the best I'd ever had. A year on, after holidays in France and Italy, and having eaten lots and lots of yours, I still think it's the best I've ever had. My favourite (I think - it's hard to choose) is the one with blue vinney. Yes it's expensive, but a little goes a long way. We find about £5 worth of one of your saucissons sliced thinly makes lunch for two of us two days running, with a big slice of melon and some good bread.
