How to create a Charcuterie Board

 
 
 

1. THE DISPLAY

The bright colors of the Salami pops out even more when served on an artisan wooden board, a marble or stoneware plate. It lifts up the appearance of the Salami but also the overall impression of the board.

2. FLAVORS and TEXTURES Of the Salami

When you put together your Salami board, be sure to mix it up. Think about flavors, texture and colors. Variety makes it of course more fun to discover new pairings from the charcuterie board but it also adds visual interest to your board and sparks conversation.

3. HOW TO ARRANGE THE Salami

For your presentation, consider leaving some of the Salamis mostly whole with a cutting knife beside. Others you can cut the whole chub. Solid yellow cheese can advantageously be cut completely, e.g. in sticks or small cubes. 

4. COLORFUL ACCOMPANIMENTS

Accompaniments is what makes the Salami board really fun – this is where you get to experiment with different flavors, textures and combinations. And the accompaniments are also what can make your Charcuterie board special – it can be simple with just a few Salamis and other cured meats or you can go for the full flavor palette depending on the occasion. Serve your accompaniments directly on the board or in small bowls to fill up the negative space and visually enhance the presentation

The basics

Bread comes in many different shapes and variants. Look not only for flavor but also color and texture. It may be a long raised sourdough bread, toasted rye bread or a light Italian bread. Crisp crispbread or delicious rustic biscuits can also be an option and taste delicious with the charcuterie.

The sweet

Plum chutney, jams, figs or other dried fruits, nuts and fresh berries are excellent choices for the charcuterie board, the sweet balances out the flavors from the salt in the Salami.

The savory

A true crowd pleaser are artisanal cheeses and cured meats – the perfect duo. Choose Lamb Salami, Parma ham, Blue cheese or similar. If you want to go with more savory items pickled onions, tomato- and basil pesto or olive tapenade are great choices.

Final touch

Fresh herbs are an easy way to add some freshness and brighten up the cheese board. Remember, not all accessories have to be homemade, you can easily buy stylish accessories in good delis or well-stocked supermarkets.
