Check out our new YouTube Channel where we’ll be sharing an inside look at the Cocina – from “how to” videos, to “behind the process” videos, to just being out in the world sharing our goods, we’re excited to offer this new way to get to know us a little better, and learn more about what we do, becuase there’s no substitute for putting a name with a face!

Food Curated Video Feature | Meatless Charcuterie: Charlito’s Cocina Fig Salami

Meet Charles Wekselbaum, the founder and head salami maker of Charlito’s Cocina, a made-by-hand, artisan charcuterie business based in Long Island City, Queens. Charles, or Charlito (as he’s affectionately known), is a master charcutier. He is one of a handful of artisan salami makers in New York City. Yet, believe it or not, his business launched in the summer of 2011 with an entirely meatless product: the fig salami, an artisan product loved by vegans and meat lovers alike.

Enjoy his fun story! To try Charlito’s Fig Salami you can visit his stand at Smorgasburg, or check out all the specialty shops and markets that carry his products.
