What Is A Charcuterie Board
According to Webstraunt Store, “In the French tradition, charcuterie (pronounced “shahr-ku-tuh-ree”) is the art of preparing and assembling cured meats and meat products. … A charcuterie board is an assortment of meats, cheeses, artisan bread, olives, fruit, and nuts, all artfully arranged on a serving board.”
How To Build This Fall Charcuterie Board?
I love making charcuterie boards because they are so versatile;e and can be built to meet your specific style. Also, I love building my boards based on the season. So with the Fall Charcuterie Board, I wanted to buy ingredients that would represent the fall season. If you are not a fan of some of the items on this specific board, feel free to sub your favorites.
Tips And Tricks
- Use A Variety Of Meats: Salami, chorizo, pepperioni, proscuitto, or summer sausage slices.
- Wait To Place The Meats: Store the meats in the fridge to right before serving. If you put it out too early it can get warm and rubery. Keeping it cool until right before eating makes it tastes so much better.
- Cheese It Up: Add at least 2 to 3 types of cheese. Texture is everything when it comes to a charcuterie board so pick be sure to pick something creamy, soft and hard. For a bit of tart flavor add in pickles and different varieties of olives.
- Savory & Sweet: I love pairing savory and sweet when builiding a tray or board. Adding lots of seasonal fruits, honey and jams along side the cheese makes for a wonderful pairing.
- The Crunch Factor: A good crunch makes everything complete. Be sure to add your favorite crackers, nuts and bread slices along side the cheese and jams. It is truly magical when adding all 3 of these together.
- Garnish: For garnish I love adding sprigs of fresh herbs. It not only gives it a mgical smell but adds a touch of elegance for the completed look.
- Don’t Forget Wine or Sparkling Cider: Wine and sparking cider is the bow on the gift. It really ties this whole board together. The salty and savory flavors of the cheese will enhance the aroma of the wine.

A charcuterie board is an assortment of meats, cheeses, artisan bread, olives, fruit, and nuts, all artfully arranged on a serving board. For me, the main thing for a charcuterie board is the meats and cheeses. I also love making sure there is a variety so guests can get a little bit of everything.
You can find charcuterie boards anywhere. And if you are having trouble finding a board you like, get creative and use a baking sheet pan, a long roll of brown parchment paper, or just a cutting board you have laying around your kitchen.
