  • Before creating the charcuterie board, arrange all of the ingredients on a working surface so you don't miss anything.
  • Begin by placing ramekins on the board in random locations. These will be for spreads, as well as ingredients like olives, or artichokes.
  • Working around the bowls, with one ingredient at a time, place about 5-8 of the ingredient in a few places around the board. Continue working, creating small areas with different ingredients, until the board is filled up with meats, cheeses, and bread ingredients.
  • Use the other ingredients, fruits, and nuts to fill in any gaps left on the board, as well as add color and visual interest.
  • Before serving, add knives for soft cheeses and spreads. Add the ingredients in the ramekins last.


*pick a selection of fruits and nuts to finish off the presentation on the charcuterie board.
*pick a selection of other ingredients to tie the board together and marry some of the flavors of the meats and cheeses.
