How To Build A Charcuterie Board

If you didn't know already, charcuterie boards are one of my favorite things in the whole world! It combines all the best things to bring so much flavor and variety to a simple appetizer. With the help of Davidson's Organics, i've created the ultimate charcuterie board guide. I've rounded up my favorite cheeses, meats and other additions to add to your board to keep everyone satisfied. Hopefully this guide will help you build your best board at your next get together!

Top Cheeses
+ Brie
+ Merlot Cheese
+ Blue Cheese or Gorgonzola
+ Sharp White Cheddar
+ Gouda
+ Truffle Cheese

Top Meats
+ Prosciutto 
+ Salami
+ Pepperoni 
+ Paté

Other Additions
+ Davidson's Organics Chai Tea Jelly
+ Davidson's Organics Chai Tea Chocolate
+ Berries, grapes and other fruit
+ Crackers

Now, grab your cute serving plate (if you don't have one, check out my favorite below) and get ready to plate your cheese, meats and other additions. To start, cram as much onto the board as you can. The closer the better! Try to separate each cheese with some type of meat of other item. It also helps if you go ahead and cut up some of the meats and cheeses. Just play around until your board looks the way you want it to! Finally, grab your cheese spreaders and knives (don't have any of those?! Check out some of my favorites below) and lay them out near the cheeses. Voila, you did it! Now go enjoy!
