Charcuterie is an elevated display of meats and cheeses that adds a luxury feel to any event -- but get this, at an affordable price! Let's walk through the steps together...

The First Step:

To achieve the perfect charcuterie board step one is picking the board itself. This really makes or breaks the idea you have in mind so be positive the board you pick is the perfect one to match your theme! 

The Second Step:

Layout! It is all about presentation and small details when it comes to charcuterie. Your aesthetic is your brand! Always keep that in mind when designing your board.

The Third Step:

Time to start filling your board! Placing a manchego cheese in a perfect zipper formation or cutting the most symmetrical brie cheese wheel is EVERYTHING. Also, make sure to keep your fingers crossed that your prosciutto wants to cooperate and fold into perfect ribbons! 

The Final Step:

Last and final step is presentation. The little details truly matter the most. Whether it’s dropping a happy birthday sign on the board or spelling a name out in cheese, this is what your family and friends will remember. 

Charcuterie is meant to be a crowd-pleaser. Cheese and carbs?? YES, PLEASE!
