Charcuterie Board How-To

a how to for holiday charcuterie boards

 Sliced baguette bread
 Assorted rustic crackers
 Assorted dried meat
 Assorted cheese
 Fruit: grapes, whole pears, figs
 Dried fruit: apricots, cranberries
 Assorted jams & honey
 Whole grain mustard
 Relish: assorted olives, pickles
 Garnish: sprigs of rosemary

Once you have your ingredients purchased, it’s time to arrange! It’s all about the presentation here, but rest assured it’s a lot easier than it looks to create a beautiful display. We like to start with a rustic wood cutting board, and utilize tiny spoons, cheese knives, and small jars or dishes to hold things like olives, jams, mustards, etc. If you’re having a larger gathering, feel free to include multiple boards in various shapes and sizes.


We like to start by placing our cheeses and meats first with plenty of space in between to fill in with your other goodies. Next, place the dishes and jars. Once you have these items placed where you want them, fill in with the smaller items. Don’t be afraid to let things touch and be mindful of color when you’re deciding where to place things. There is no right or wrong way to do it, so just have fun!


Once you have things arranged, garnish your display with sprigs of rosemary for a festive finished look! Feel free to add little labels to your different cheeses and meats for added customization.
