Setting Up Your Date Night Charcuterie Board
Of course, when it comes to charcuterie, the design and layout choice is up to you. However, here is a great way to plate any charcuterie board to maximize their appeal and keep your ingredients fresh and separate. If you were to set your meat close to something like fresh wet olives, the flavors may mix. The goal of charcuterie is to provide a varied number of flavors and combinations, so keeping ingredients separate is important. You will want to group ingredients into sections like cheeses, meats, olives, etc.
The next things you will want to keep in mind are the colors and aesthetic of your charcuterie spread. A charcuterie spread is nothing if not beautiful. You should arranged the colors pleasingly rather than randomly. Avoid mixing a bunch of different types and colors of food and keep soggy or slightly wet ingredients separate from your dry ingredients like your breads and crackers. Pair this board with a great glass of red wine and you are ready for a great date-night cheeseboard experience.
