Two Charleston products this week received recognition from the Good Food Awards, an annual competition for artisan edibles.

Cypress’ culatello (salumi made the from the rear portion of a pig’s hind leg) and Christophe Artisan Chocolatier’s Dark Chocolate Espresso were both named finalists in the contest, along with another 198 items divided into categories such as beer, cheese, coffees, preserves and pickles. The list will be whittled down to 100 winners at a San Francisco gala in January.
