Mon Amour- Charcuterie Platter

Mon Amour. This cafe has the distinctive air of authentic European fare. Cured meat, salted, smoked and air-dried, are displayed like delicatessens in Italy- strung up on hanging racks and in curing chambers- alluring passerbys to its shop window. Breads are baked in-house and the selection of foreign cheeses requires a quick googling for a non-cheese-eater (myself of course) to understand but as an avid traveller, I can appreciate its origins: France, Italy, Spain and England to name a few. 

You are probably wondering what's a cafe got to do with artisan deli products? The big idea here is to build a dish featuring one or more of these gourmet ingredients; whether it's a meat, cheese or house-made accompaniment, you can expect something fanciful on your plate. It's Mon Amour's innovative way to turn your regular avo and poached into memorable nosh. 

The gluten free dairy free charcuterie board features: fresh gluten free bread, basturma, salami di milano, australian prosciutto, evoo, dukka, seeded mustard with figs and roasted nuts. I'm officially a bon vivant...teehee =)
Mon Amour's menu begins with all day breakfast and lunch options, and you'll find your brunch favourites. The menu then diversifies into custom-made charcuterie boards, offering an impressive range of delicatessen goods for those keen on fashioning their own nibbles. For people with gluten and dairy intolerance, the charcuterie board presents excellent homemade accompaniments, such as dukka, seeded mustard, extra virgin australian olive oil, nuts and edible flowers to pair with your choice of specialty dried meats. It is a platter of complete delectable fare, especially for summer evenings with a bottle of wine. Mon Amour is open 7 days a week from 7:30am for all day breakfast and lunch, dinner available Thursday to Sunday from 5:00pm onwardsAddress: 67 Cardigan Place, Albert Park, Melbourne. Website:
