Crafting the Perfect Charcuterie Board

Crafting the Perfect Charcuterie Board

Whether we're hosting a casual get-together or a festive holiday party, we find that a charcuterie board is a real crowd-pleaser. By incorporating local delicacies such as organic cheeses, farm fresh produce, and handcrafted serving vessels, it is a feast for both your eyes and palate. Here are our tips to create a stunning and delicious charcuterie board that will make an impression on your guests.

Before you start assembling your charcuterie board, make sure you have all the necessary supplies on hand:

Select Your Charcuterie Meats and Cheeses

The anchor of any charcuterie board are the meats and cheeses. Select three or four of each to place randomly throughout the board.

  • Prosciutto
  • Salami
  • Chorizo
  • Brie
  • Cheddar
  • Gouda
  • Blue cheese
  • Camembert

Arrange Your Board

And now to the fun part - arranging your charcuterie board!

  • Create balance: Distribute the items evenly across the board to avoid overcrowding any one area.
  • Mix textures and colors: Arrange items with different textures and colors to make the board visually appealing.
  • Overlapping and folding: Overlapping slices of meats or cheese can add depth to your presentation.
  • Use small bowls: Place condiments, olives, or nuts in small bowls or ramekins to keep them contained and add visual interest.

Serve and Enjoy

With a drizzle of honey and a toast to good company, it's time to serve and enjoy!
