The art of curating intricate displays of mixed meats, fruits, and cheeses on rustic, wooden boards that appeal to both taste and sight has taken the world by storm. During the pandemic, many utilized their free time to practice creating these beautiful, edible arrangements with hopes of bringing them to future gatherings. Charcuterie became a hobby for many, but for Gilli Rozynek, BC ’20, it turned into a lifestyle.
When Rozynek studied abroad in Spain her junior year, she saw charcuterie as a vehicle to spark conversation and build camaraderie. Back in the United States, she saw an uptick in popularity of people making their own charcuterie boards during the pandemic, but there wasn’t a place people could go to buy them. So, Rozynek decided to make this realization her career reality and opened Kured, a fast food—like charcuterie experience in Beacon Hill.
