Filmmaker Educates and Entertains with Works on Charcuterie and Turkey Bacon



Got a spare sixteen minutes and a burning desire to learn about charcuterie? Filmmaker Christian Remde's made it easy. The Austin, Texas filmmaker has produced a short documentary called, "Charcuterie - A Documentary" as part of his Twelve Films Project. He's making a film each month in 2011.

In July, he focused on Kocurek Family Charcuterie, a pair of siblings who make old-style charcuterie and sell it at farmers' markets in Austin and San Antonio.

While it's entertaining and educational, we're more fond of February's entry, "30 Years," which illustrates the life-and-death breakfast conversation started by the lie that is turkey bacon.
