At Home Charcuterie Board ​

Written by on May 4, 2021

One of Noah and I’s favorite things to do is snack on a delicious charcuterie board and sip some wine! We recently traveled to Nashville and made a stop at Cheese Gal. I have been following Cheese Gal on Instagram for some time and have always wanted to experience one of their delicious cheese boards! Courtney, the owner of Cheese Gal, makes not only the most delightful charcuterie boards, but they are a work of art! I have never seen a more beautiful charcuterie board. I will post some photos below of the delicious charcuterie board we had. We even picked up some honey and sourdough crackers to take home! The best part about the honey is that it not only was some of the most delicious honey I have ever tasted, but it came with a booklet on how to make your own charcuterie board. 

When Noah and I got home from Nashville, we stopped at some local shops and picked up local cheese, salami, olives, fruits, nuts, and we went home and made our own board! It was honestly so much fun, and I was pleasantly surprised at how it tuned out. I wanted to show you how I built my charcuterie board with the help of the owner of Cheese Gal’s instructions! 

Step 1- Foundation 

Start with cheese, honey, and small bowls of jam! 

Step 2- Crackers & Charcuterie

Add in crackers and salami. My two favorite tips from the owner of Cheese Gal are to fan out the crackers and fold the salami to give it a flower effect! 

Step 3- Fresh + Dried Produce 

Next, adding fresh and dried produce will give your board color, and it’s also my favorite to cleanse my pallets in between eating tons of cheese and salami! 

Step 4- Olives & Nuts 

Adding olives and nuts is a great way to fill gaps on your board! Not to mention green olives ​are my favorite paired with cheese🫒

Step 5- Garnish & Take Photos 

This last step is optional! I think what makes Cheese Gal’s boards so beautiful is the final step of adding fresh herbs and flowers. It gives the board that “Wow” factor. And of course, taking photos when your all complete is optional, but for me, it’s a must! 

Here are the ingredients I used!
