Epic Charcuterie Board

Last year, I was in Sonoma with some of my food blogging friends. We had a blast working together to make this amazing charcuterie board!

When you’re on a girl trip, especially in California wine country like we were, this is such an easy appetizer, dinner and not to mention fun party idea. Setting up a charcuterie board takes very little thought and looks absolutely incredible!

After a day of wine tasting and shopping, we were definitely not in the mood to cook dinner. Funny to think about not cooking when you’re in a house full of amazing food bloggers right? Well, we cook and bake everyday for our blogs. You can’t blame us for wanting a break right? ha!

With the help of Dorothy from Crazy for Crust, I planned a night of fun (click here to see the –> Witch’s Night Out Halloween Party) and that’s how this epic charcuterie board was born!

I was looking through old photos and found the house we stayed in. Isn’t this the most gorgeous home? I sure wish we were back there right now. See more photos of our fun girls trip –> here.

How To Make An AMAZING Charcuterie Board

If you want to throw a simple dinner party, don’t worry about spending a lot of time buying all of the food. Ask friends to bring something to add to your epic charcuterie board. Designate each guest with a certain type of food.

How To Make a Charcuterie Board

What you’ll need for a Charcuterie Board:

  • Crackers
  • Bread
  • Cheese
  • Meats such as pepperoni, salami and other dried meats you can leave out on a table for a while.
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts
  • Dips (try my Dill Pickle Dip or Homemade Tzatziki Recipe
  • Cookies 

Decor for your table:

Don’t forget fresh herbs for decorations. We had some parsley, mint and rosemary that looked and smelled amazing on our table.

You’ll also want cutting boards, small bowls or dishes and a few pretty platters to add some dimension and height.

 

Charcuterie Table Prep

Before guests arrive, you’ll want to have a large table or kitchen counter ready for the food. Cover an area with a large sheet of kraft paper. Now you’re ready to pile it high with your bread, crackers, meats, fruits, nuts, dips and cheeses.

This is so easy and will make an amazing party presentation!

There is no right or wrong way to display your food. I do recommend starting with the largest items like a cutting board with a loaf of bread. Add the largest items first, then work your way around those items filling in the space on the table.

You can watch us make this Epic Charcuterie Board in the time lapse video on this page. It was so fun!

Add Holiday Treats to Your Board

For Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas you could add your holiday themed desserts throughout the fruits and cheeses, then watch everyone smile as they walk in the room to see your amazing spread!

Halloween Chocolate Toffee or this Snowman Cheese Ball would be adorable on a charcuterie board.
