What are Charcuterie Boards?

A charcuterie board is a way to present a variety of meats and cheeses, fruit or nuts, and even desserts. It’s essentially a beautiful presentation of a meat and cheese board to pair with wine. Charcuterie Boards are super flexible too. Really, you can personalize your board to any way you’d like, from the type of board and knives used to food served. Want something super low key? Go for it. Want something pricey and upscale? That’s great too.

Or keep it budget-friendly by setting out a small plate or go all out with a huge platter! Buying individual boards are a chic way to set up your next get together and make your guests feel special.
