It is actually pretty easy to become a charcutier. You just have to follow a recipe. I am good at following recipes.
The difficulty here is to do it.
On my list a "well defined, realistic goal" is to make my own sausage and serve it on a dinner party to my family.
I suppose the steps here are like with the baking... take a cookbook, start from page 1 and finish in the end.
