A Feast of Cured Meats in Queens

For the past three years, Charcuterie Masters, an event in Flushing, Queens, has been the ultimate pork showcase in New York. This year, it will be on Feb. 23, and there will be more than 60 kinds of charcuterie, including products that will be sold to take home. Chefs will prepare cured meats, simply sliced and in various preparations, for tasting; there will also be competitions (both professional and people’s choice), and butchery and slicing demonstrations.

Charcuterie Masters, Feb. 23, 6 to 9 p.m., Flushing Town Hall, 137-35 Northern Boulevard (Linden Place), Flushing, Queens, $70, or $150 for V.I.P. entrance at 5 p.m., nyepicureanevents.com.
