Charcuterie boards get creative

It’s not just cheese, crackers and cold cuts anymore: Today’s charcuterie boards are anything but boring, with killer components in a display of culinary showmanship.

More than any other item (except maybe alcohol) charcuterie boards play the role of social director at an event. “Charcuterie is a great way to spark conversation and really get people talking,” says Rashelle “Ro” Solano, executive catering director at Texas Christian University, where you’ll rarely find the same charcuterie board twice. “I love to source and use local ingredients as well as something people may not have seen or tasted before.”
