I made this cheese board for our housewarming party last month and I still canโ€™t get over how pretty it turned out. The ingredients were simple and I truly believe that the salami folding really brought it together.

Hereโ€™s what I threw together:
โžœ meat: salami
โžœ cheese: goat cheese with cranberries and apricots, Toscano cheese dusted with cinnamon, cheddar & gruyere
โžœ crackers: Angelic Bakehouse honey + raisin crisps (these are SO good)
โžœ fruit: figs, blueberries
โžœ garnish: rosemary



We had our Halloween potluck at work earlier this week, and I wanted to share my festive creation! The brie shape was originally supposed to be a ghost, but my hand slipped and now itโ€™s a hand I guess lol oops.

Hereโ€™s what I threw together:
โžœ meat: salami
โžœ cheese: pepper jack, cranberry goat cheese, brie
โžœ crackers: fig & olive crisps, water crackers, festive ghost and bat chips from Trader Joes!
โžœ fruit: cranberries
โžœ spreads: raw honeycomb
โžœ garnish: mini pumpkin + rosemary

Stay tuned for some winter creations in the coming months! In the meantime, what is your favorite thing to add to a charcuterie board?
