When you hear ‘charcuterie board’ you might first imagine a spread of cheese, crackers and deli meats, but in reality, they can include so much more! So, in honour of National Wine and Cheese Day on July 25, here are some fun and delicious charcuterie board ideas to try.
By the way, if you are in need of a board to place your goodies on, we have a couple different wooden display boards that make perfect vessels for charcuterie! However, do keep in mind that they need to be coated with a beeswax polish or covered with wax paper or cling wrap before placing food on them.
Enjoy your charcuterie and don’t forget to include a glass of wine and light your Wine Country Soy Wax Candle for a complimentary aroma while snacking!
Try a colour theme to make your board unique and eye-catching! For example, arrange only red foods like radishes, red bell peppers, red wax cheese, beet hummus, beet chips or crackers, red deli meats, strawberries and cherries, etc.
Summer is the season for s’mores! Why not create a board focused solely on this ooey gooey treat?
Add a dish of melted chocolate, pre-roasted marshmallows (cooked in the oven or over a campfire beforehand), graham crackers and anything else you’d like to put in your s’mores. Fun add-ons include peanut butter, caramel, hazelnut spread and even small pieces of bacon!
Do you have a sweet tooth? Try a candy board for movie night! Using our Display Board Scoop with Twine makes this idea truly unique and playful as it looks like a giant version of a scoop from a bulk store. Fill up your scoop with whatever treats you like and enjoy the movie!
