Fall Charcuterie Board Ideas
When it comes to charcuterie board ideas, I like to break down the ingredients into five key components:
- Assorted extras (olives, nuts, cornichon, etc.)
A great charcuterie board has a little something for everyone, which leads me to the most popular question I get…
What Cheese Goes Well On a Charcuterie Board?
Consider both taste and texture when it comes to cheese selections. Variety is the spice of life… and the key to a successful charcuterie board!
- Hard Cheeses: Parmesan (I love it in crumble form!), Cheddar (both yellow and white), Gruyere, Gouda, Manchego
- Soft Cheeses: Brie, Camembert, Goat Cheese, Burrata
- Mild Cheeses: Port Salut (My favorite cheese of all time!), Havarti, Jarlsberg
- Strong Cheeses: Roquefort, Stilton, Aged Gouda
What Are the Best Crackers for a Charcuterie Board?
Taste and texture are back, but we’ve got a third component to consider when it comes to charcuterie board carbs: shape! No one wants to tackle a larger-than-life chunk of cheddar on a barely-there waif of a rice cracker. When it comes to crackers, opt for a mix of the below varieties:
- Classic round crackers (a.k.a. water crackers)
- Extra-crunchy squares (Raincoast Crisps are a great option)
- Breadsticks (of all widths and toppings)
- Rectangular flatbreads (the crispy cracker type, which can be found plain or flavored)
