The concept of melding together a visual and edible art form started when Diana saw the response from her guests when she would host gatherings in her home. When friends and family encountered her charcuterie boards her home became filled with life, inspiration and praise. It was clear that she had something rich and special to share with her local community.
The Art of Charcuterie was founded in 2018 by Diana Harrison. Diana’s motto is to live an inspired life, create beauty and to pursue life’s purpose. She does exactly this in all elements of her life, including her work with Art of Charcuterie.
Diana brings a wealth of experience and insight to the table. Before starting the Art of Charcuterie, she travelled the world as a private flight attendant, where she explored and delved into the beauty of many different cultures. Taking cooking classes around the world allowed her to see and experience how food universally brings people together, and how it is used to heal, love and nourish.
Diana’s movement to bring people together through food and love is the core value of Art of Charcuterie.
The Art of Charcuterie is inspired by the love of food, people and art. The passion and love used to create the edible and visual elements of our charcuterie is transferred to those who consume it.
Our mission is to go beyond the nutritional elements of our ingredients and to inspire love and engagement through art and food.
When food is displayed in a beautiful way, we consume and digest it differently. We become more present in the experience and can appreciate the intricate and subtle details in the textures and flavours. The enjoyment inspires us to talk about, and share, our experience with others. This is how grazing brings people together, to share and enjoy a beautiful experience with one another; this is why Art of Charcuterie creates and facilitates this type of eating experience.
