Rather than grazing a charcuterie table, San Antonians can snack on handheld versions that are just as aesthetically pleasing. They’re called “char-cuties” and Abigail Medilin, owner of AbBees Charcuterie Boards, said they’re a “hit” with her clients.

Instagram-worthy ‘char-cuties’ are now a ‘hit’ in San Antonio

Rather than grazing a charcuterie table, San Antonians can snack on handheld versions that are just as aesthetically pleasing.

Medlin specializes in building charcuterie and crudité boards, plates and boxes. Charcuterie is a culinary art of preparing cured meats with cheeses and nuts. She’s been wanting to introduce grazing options for parties to her menu, but the coronavirus pandemic has put those plans on hold.

Instead of preparing charcuterie boards to share with large groups, Medlin is introducing the mini versions to the Alamo City.

Medlin says she was inspired by other charcuterie businesses she follows on social media. Along with being perfect for pandemic-era picnics and adventures, the char-cuties are also a beginner’s guide to the French delicatessen specialty.

“It turns out not a lot of people know what they are,” Medlin said. “So far it’s been a hit! I’m so excited for people to try them.”

Each char-cutie is $8 and is packed with honey-drizzled cheese, meat, berries, a cherry, olive, sliced fruit, nuts and five large crackers. Orders of three or more come with mini honey jar and dipper set. Medlin says char-cuties can get “snazzy” additions like jam or a piece of honeycomb for a little extra.

Medlin accepts orders via Facebook, Instagram or by emailing AbBeesCharcuteries@gmail.com. She is still selling her traditional options as well. Typically, a 24-hour notice is needed for regular orders and at least 3-4 days for larger ones.
