Instructions

  1. To start, select your board size. This will give you a better idea of how much to purchase for your charcuterie board. Once you've decided on your board place your cheeses around the board with a couple cheese knives. Garnish edges with fresh rosemary and thyme if desired. Place some little plates and bowls around the board that you'll use as a guide to help arrange your board. I space out my plates and bowls as in photos. Once your cheeses and dishes are set on board, start arranging your meats. Fold some of the meat for variety and fan out others flat on the board. See photos above for ideas. Add some of your fresh berries to the bowls/plates on your board. Add marinated olives, artichoke hearts and sweet peppers next. Start filling in spaces with dried fruit and nuts. If you've still got room, add sliced pickles, dill pickles and cucumbers. Fill in more spaces with nuts. Add mustard and honey then fill in with crackers arranging around the board. My ingredients above are just suggestions, enjoy all of your favorites! Hope you enjoy.
