There is a good reason that charcuterie boards are so popular. If you are new to them, a traditional charcuterie board usually features a combination of fresh fruits, different types of cheeses, a variety of meats, and some kind of bread or crackers.

Then you can add on a couple of other accompaniments like pickles, nuts, or spreads.

I can easily pick up all of the ingredients at my local grocery store or, if I have the time, I can go to a specialty shop.

Charcuterie favorites

Some of my go-to cheeses include…

  • soft cheeses like Brie and goat cheese, a
  • blue cheese, and
  • hard cheeses like aged cheddar or parmesan.
  • Prosciutto and salami are typical meat choices. Then I include things like…
  • pumpkin seeds, pecans, dried fruits, apple slices
  • or other seasonal fruits, pomegranate seeds, cranberry sauce, and fig jam.
  • Finally, I throw on some baguette slices and crackers, and I’m done.

Charcuterie boards are a fun way to feed hungry guests during the holiday season or at any gathering. You can dress them up or down.

There are so many different ways to put one together too. You could do a simple cheese board or fruit board. I love making sweet versions, like a candy or dessert board.

Tips and Tricks

  • The best charcuterie boards include a variety of flavors, including sweet, sour, and savory, along with a mixture of textures.
  • The easiest way to create visual interest is by using different sizes and colors when arranging your charcuterie board. Start by placing larger items on your board, then fill in the gaps with smaller items.
  • Use small bowls to hold spreads, nuts, pickles, or candy. I love classic white, but you could also add a pop of color by using bowls that coordinate with your theme.
  • Cover your charcuterie platter in plastic wrap before assembling to make clean up a breeze.
