Producer Profile: Tempus Charcuterie


Founded in Surrey by Master Chef's Dhruv Baker and Tom Whitaker, Tempus is more than just a charcuterie brand - it’s a celebration of craftsmanship, quality and respect for ingredients. Their journey begins with a simple yet profound belief: to make exceptional charcuterie, you need exceptional meat...


The Magic behind the Charcuterie...


"I’ve always been drawn to charcuterie as one of those magical things, much like cheese and wine, that feel like alchemy."

- Dhruv Baker


Tempus' dedication to craftsmanship is evident in every step of their process. From butchering to fermenting, curing, and ageing, Tempus ensure that their charcuterie undergoes meticulous attention to detail, with some products taking over a year to perfectly mature. 


At the heart of Tempus' philosophy lies their commitment to flavour. They blend carefully selected spices to enhance the natural richness of their meats, creating a range of unique charcuterie that tantalises the taste-buds and elevates any culinary experience.



Delicious & Sustainable 


That's why Tempus exclusively use outdoor-reared ex-breeding sows and ex-dairy beef in their charcuterie. These animals, often weighing more than 160kg, possess marbling, fat ratios, and intensity of flavour that simply cannot be matched by younger and smaller animals.


Tempus' commitment to quality doesn't stop there. It's a matter of principle - a sustainable philosophy deeply rooted in their ethos. Tempus believe in utilising the food chain correctly, treating every animal with the respect and reverence it deserves. This is why they only use animals coming to the end of their lives, ensuring to minimal waste.


From their rich and savoury salamis to their perfectly aged beef bresaola, Tempus' carefully cured and aged meats offer a symphony of flavours and textures that's sure to impress even the most discerning palate. Each slice tells a story of time-honoured traditions, meticulous craftsmanship and unparalleled quality.
