What's this word?

I'm looking at my new Williams-Sonoma catalog. There's a dried fig compote - and the description says "Enjoy it with cheese, charcuterie and roast pork." What's charcuterie?

Definition: [shahr-KOO-tuhr-ee; shar-koo-tuhr-EE] Taken from the term cuiseur de chair, meaning "cooker of meat," charcuterie has been considered a French culinary art at least since the 15th century. It refers to the products, particularly (but not limited to) pork specialties such as pâtés, rillettes, galantines, crépinettes, etc., which are made and sold in a delicatessen-style shop, also called a charcuterie.
