Charcuterie boards are mostly about creativity. What flavors do you like? Are you going for a specific theme? Sweet, savory, crunchy and chewy are four pillars to build off of, but your assortment could include anything from jams, nuts, fruits, veggies, cured meats, fish, and cheese of course. Some folks add fun touches like candy. Dessert charcuterie even exists! But if looking for building blocks to craft a traditional board, we’ve line up some options that will help accomplish that.
A Good Cheese Board and Knife Set
A beautiful wooden board is the foundation for charcuterie, and it’s something that will be used for possibly generations. Made with organic bamboo, this set has all the serving utensils, and a thoughtful groove around the edges for crackers (it prevents spillage too).
Nuts are the perfect intro to a board. They are what folks will start snacking on first most likely, along with olives and pickles. Wow them from the very first bite, by selecting something not too overwhelming, but noteworthy. Thrive Market’s tamari almonds have just enough zing, while still holding true to simple roasted flavor.
