Are you hosting a holiday get together, but don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen? Then you need to hop on the charcuterie [shahr-koo-tuh–ree] board train and make a pretty platter of your favorite fruits, cheeses, spreads, and meats.
Serve with crackers, crostini’s, and wine and you have a fancy meal. You might remember this Bruschetta Party Platter I have shared before.
I promise you it will be the hit of the fiesta and it’s stress-free entertaining.
My friend’s Karen and Christina styled this charcuterie board for our Friendsgiving Tamalada and they did an amazing job! Doesn’t it look like a piece of art?
Below are some of my favorite ingredients, but feel free to display your favorites.
- Quince paste
- Assorted cheeses
- Fig preserves
- Water crackers
- Baguette, sliced and toasted
- Slice cheeses.
- Wash and slice fruit.
- Place small bowls on your board and fill with preserves, olives, or any wet ingredients.
- Place meats, cheeses, and crackers around the board.
- Add in fruit for color.
