Did Someone Say Charcuterie Board?
Serving up a good time
This Pinterest debut isn't dying anytime soon
A wise philosopher once said that food is the way to anyone’s heart (if you know who said that, please let us know - it's been eating away at us). Regardless, we certainly agree! And, what better way to serve an all-star display at an event than with a charcuterie board? Spoiler: You don’t have to be a five-star chef to get this one right. Best charcuterie board, here you come.
For starters, just arrange a few types of cheese, meats, crackers, fruit, and spreads on a beautiful board and… TA-DA! Done. But, there is an art to the board we call charcuterie...which is why we are gathered here today. Scroll on for our best board creating tips.
Fast & easy grocery store go-to's
We've got your lists of essentials to dress up your charcuterie board. Think color, texture, and variety of options. Beyond that, you really can't go wrong.

Ultimately, your charcuterie board is yours (but here is your reminder to share!) Does your group tend to navigate more toward meats and cheeses or fruits and nuts? Consider your guests as you make your way through the grocery store aisles. The great part of charcuterie is that you don't need to limit it. Try laying crackers in curved lines, stacking cheese to different heights, and sprinkling dried fruit in the gaps. Voila! The French origins of charcuterie themselves are applauding your efforts.
