First things first – a boucherie is a butcher shop. And, you probably didn’t know that SCCC had one, did you? Well, they do and it’s open now for the Spring semester.
The Boucherie is offering hand-crafted products, made in-house by garde manger students in SCCC’s Culinary Arts program. They’ve got fresh sausages, smoked meats, pastas, fresh cuts of meat, and charcuterie (cured and preserved meats such as bacon, ham, pâtés, galantines, terrines, etc.). Selection changes every week.
I just received the info today, and it did not include next week’s offerings. I’ll post an update when I have them. I plan on checking this out next week, and I’ll have photos and more information then.
The Boucherie is located in SCCC’s garde-manger kitchen, room 103 in Elston Hall.
Hours of Operation:
- Mondays: 12:30pm – 1:30pm
- Tuesdays: 2:30pm – 3:30pm
- Tuesday Evenings: 7:30pm – 8:30pm

We just had lunch yesterday at the Casola; we both had paella. Exquisite! And there was so much that we had a whole lunch of it again today, and there’s still enough left for one of us.
That place is one of the best kept secrets in the Capital District.
I know, right? I think everyone needs to know about it, but I’m conflicted because if they did there would be NO WAY to get a reservation! It’s hard enough now.
Hard enough to get reservations now. Don’t tell ANYONE!
In fact, please remove it from this blog. 🙂
