Food Boards

I love putting together 'food boards', charcuterie, cheeses, desserts, dips, appetizers, hors d'oeuvres, and so on.  

They can be a feast for your eyes as well as a variety of delicious flavors for your palate!

Charcuterie Boards are typically filled with cured and/or cooked meats. 

 Cheese trays have a variety of soft and hard cheeses

I prefer to mix both!

When putting together your tray, think of a variety of colors as well as flavors!

They can be small and personal...

...or filled with mini portions of sweet and savory.

They can be festive...

...or simple...

...or even hearty!

I find them so easy to prepare....

...and it's always fun serving them to my guests!

What is your favorite way to serve snacks?

  1. I love a good charcuterie board! I use whatever I happen to have on hand and it makes the perfect thing to serve with a great bottle of wine! My vote is cheese - any kind, really, and some Italian spiced meats, with some fruit and nuts on the side.

  2. These meat, cheese and pickle type trays are my favorite way to graze! Love all of the fun food combinations, your Christmas one is very pretty Patti:@)

  3. I love snacking like you've created. Cheese and grapes always for me. I love the little lights in the bowl - nice touch!

  4. Always a fun and attractive way to serve! Beautiful presentations!

  5. They all look beautiful and delicious, Patti. Now I'm hungry!

  6. So many beautiful creative boards Patti! I have only recently started entertaining with charcuterie boards, they are so much fun to make and guests love endless possibilities! I am pinning some of your great ideas!
