Charcuterie Board 101

Share this Post

As friends and family gather around the Thanksgiving table, it’s not always easy to please every palate. Perhaps that’s why the charcuterie board trend shows no signs of slowing down. Also known as a grazing board, this appetizer offers something for everyone.

Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse carries exactly what you need for a beautiful and delicious charcuterie board, including fresh cheeses like our Boursin Garlic and Herb Cheese* and Cobblestreet Sliced Mozzarella Cheese*. Plus, our high-quality Gold Canyon deli meat selection can’t be matched. Add some entertaining crackers, a variety of nuts, plus some honey, jam and fresh or dried fruit for a touch of sweetness, and you’re ready to go.

With the right mix of colorful, sweet and savory ingredients, even those of us with a little less artistic skill than others can easily put together a board worthy of guests gathering around for a taste. Here are a few of our favorite tips:

  1. Place bulkier items first – like a wheel of Brie – and build around it.
  2. Slice cheese and roll meats for ease of fanning and stacking these items on the board.
  3. Use smaller items like nuts, olives and dried fruit as dividers between meats and cheeses.
  4. Fill small bowls with dips and sauces for placement directly on the board.

One of the greatest attributes of serving charcuterie boards is the opportunity to introduce new flavor combinations and spark conversation.
