The joy and gastronomic fun of a charcuterie board
Charcuterie boards or simply charcuterie (shar-Koo-Tuh-Ree), actually dates back to 15th century France.
Traditionally, a charcuterie board consists of cured (salted or smoked) meats and cheeses. Of course, being of French origin, the charcuterie is normally paired with wine.
(FYI, the practice of salting and smoking meats to preserve them dates back 6,000 years to ancient Rome.)
Today however, the rule when it comes to creating a charcuterie board is that there is no rule!
If you’re hungry and want something fun to eat—arrange it on a charcuterie board any which way you like!
To give you some mouth-watering ideas on how you can create a charcuterie board...
Either let your imagination run wild and let your stomach be your guide.
