Do You Charcuterie?

Charcuterie is truly an art form.  French in origin, charcuterie is a "branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products such as sausage, bacon, ham, pate..." (Wikipedia).

Last weekend I hosted a wine tasting party at my house.  The theme for the evening was South American wines.  I served two whites and three reds.  The first course was this charcuterie platter:

Chardonnay from Chile was a lovely accompaniment to the charcuterie, which consisted of several types of salamis, fresh and dried fruits, homemade chicken liver pate, hummus, nuts, breads, olives and several cheese.

Have you served a charcuterie platter? If so, what was on yours? 

I'm looking forward to throwing my next party, wine tasting or just a get together, the charcuterie platter will surely make another appearance!
