What is a Charcuterie Board?
A charcuterie board is a carefully arranged platter of cured meats, cheeses, crackers, fruits, nuts, and other complementary accompaniments. The term “charcuterie” refers to the art of preparing cured meats such as ham, bacon, and sausages.
A traditional charcuterie board may include a variety of cured meats like prosciutto, salami, and chorizo, paired with different types of cheese such as brie, gouda, and cheddar.
The board can also feature fruits like grapes and figs, nuts like almonds and pistachios, and spreads like honey or jam.
The arrangement is often a beautiful board of savory or sweet treats and is meant to be shared among a group of people as a type of appetizer or snack during the holiday season or any special occasion like a baby shower.
They not only are a great way to display food, but they also make for a beautiful centerpiece for any gathering.
