The Key to Amazing Charcuterie
A Variety of Meats: Offer a variety of meats to please different tastebuds. The Summer Sausage and Salami offer diverse flavors and textures, while the Flat Strips, Roast Beef, and Snack Sticks provide a delicate, rich flavor.
Great Cheese Selection: Our blocks of cheese from Redhead Creamery provide soft texture and a flavorful accompaniment to the delicious cured meats. Mix hard and soft cheese for magnificent pairings. Include cheese-friendly additions like honey, fig jam, or mustard.
Bread, Crackers, and Corn Nibblets: Our Corn Nibblets from Sunshine Suzy provide a satisfying crunch to any charcuterie board. Add a selection of breads like baguette slices, crostini, and crackers for a variety of textures.
Fresh and Dried Fruits: Add color and freshness with berries like strawberries, blueberries, or cranberries. Include dried fruits like apricots, figs, or dates for a sweet contrast.
Nuts and Seeds: Pistachios and walnuts make wonderful additions to any charcuterie board. Sweet and buttery, almonds are a perfect complement to cured meats.
Pickles and Olives: Pickles add a tangy crunch. Include stuffed olives for a burst of flavor.
Spreads and Dips: Whole grain mustard is a classic accompaniment that pairs well with salami. Olive Tapenade is a flavorful dip that complements various cured meats.
Use a Variety of Textures: Mix wooden boards, slate, or marble surfaces for visual interest.
Organic Arrangement: Arrange organically rather than in strict patterns for a rustic look.
Garnish with Fresh Herbs: Sprinkle herbs like rosemary or thyme for color and fragrance.
Include Cheese Knives and Spreaders: Place appropriate utensils for easy serving.
