CHARCUTERIE CHECKLIST:

  • Cured Meats – Pre-sliced meats are your savory foundation.
  • Cheeses – Offer one or two options with different textures and different sharpness levels.
  • Pickled Element – Add pickles or olives. The briny and sour notes contrast with rich meats and cheeses.
  • Sweet – Add a honey, jam or seasonal fruit to play off the salty elements.
  • Textural Element – Sliced baguette or crackers add texture and crunch to the board.
