The bonus of creating this popular appetizer at home is the freedom of ultimate customization. After all, being the master of your own charcuterie board gives you creative control of the flavor and texture pairings you would like to achieve. To help you build you own charcuterie board at home, we worked with charcuterie board aficionado, Zach Jaramillo, to share his best practices and tips.
“What’s great about charcuterie boards is their size flexibility. You can scale up the size of a board for a family gathering or scale down the size of a board to an individual snack,” Jaramillo said.
The core elements of a standard charcuterie board include: bread or crackers, meat, cheese, spreads/jams, and fruits & vegetables. The creativity, however, comes from deciding your flavor combinations, some of which may pleasantly surprise you.
