A charcuterie board is an assortment of meats, cheeses, artisan breads, olives, fruit, and more. It's the perfect appetizer for any gathering.
The first step is picking the right board. Wooden boards are traditional, but slate or marble can also create a beautiful presentation
Choose a variety of cured meats such as prosciutto, salami, and pâté. Aim for a mix of textures and flavors.
Balance your board with a mix of hard and soft cheeses. Consider classics like cheddar, brie, gouda, and blue cheese.
Bring your board to life with extras. Think fruits, nuts, olives, pickles, and spreads like honey or jam.
Offer a variety of breads and crackers. Baguette slices, artisanal crackers, and breadsticks are all great options.
