Charcuterie, this traditionally French platter, is a beautiful way to present food & know that it will taste simply delicious. Meaning to serve cold cooked meats, or a meat shop that serves these products, mostly meat from a pig, this platter is an easy way to serve food to your guests. With a nice selection of foods, from fruit, to cheese to cold cooked meats, charcuterie platters being protein heavy, allow guests to eat relatively healthy, but leave tastebuds satisfied, yet still wanting more.
To create this platter:
Marble Platter: Williams & Sonoma Toasted Parmasan Crusted Toast Manchego Cheese ( Sliced 1/4″ thick) Brie ( use cheese knife to slice) Grapes Mixed Nuts Assorted Olives Red/Orange Peppers Prosciutto ( Sliced super thin) Chorizo Fig jam
This is a great platter to make for the holidays, a girls night in, a sporting event or if you want something easy and substantial to nibble on. The items on this charcuterie platter pair really nicely with any full bodied red wine.
