Learn The Art Of The Charcuterie
So, if a cheese board is a bit too vegetarian for your taste, try a charcuterie platter instead. Like a cheese board with the protein factor turned WAY up, this savory platter is perfect for keeping wine tasters satisfied. To assemble, start with a board, add cheese, meat, bread, and then add some edible garnish (like grapes, compote, or sour pickles). Think two ounces of meat per person, and opt for at least three varieties - a hard salami, a paté, and something smokey (like kielbasa).
