Who doesn’t love a good charcuterie board? If you’ve never heard of this term or can’t figure out how to say it, it’s basically a fancy meat and cheese tray. These boards have a balance of textures, flavors, and food that contrasts and complements each other. Presentation is a big part of charcuterie boards. Natural wood cutting boards, a variety of colors, and beautiful looking items make these boards visually appealing and show off food in a beautiful way.
