It is very likely that in recent months you have come across the so-called “charcuterie board” on social networks. And if you’ve asked yourself the question, “What is a charcuterie board?

At Lidaria we are passionate about keeping up with the latest gastronomic trends, so today we are going to tell you all its secrets, how to make a charcuterie board step by step, and we will leave you with a very Iberian option to leave your next guests open-mouthed.

What is a charcuterie board?

You may be surprised to learn that the trendy dish is simply a modern version of the traditional appetizer.  What makes this new trend special is the fact that all the ingredients are presented on the same board, instead of being separated into different plates.

The charcuterie board is the perfect option to surprise your family, friends or guests with a very striking appetizer that will not leave anyone indifferent.

What do you need to make a charcuterie board?

A good charcuterie board has two fundamental elements. The first is a board, plate or flat surface on which the food will be placed. The most commonly used boards are usually made of wood, and you can choose the design that best suits your style. If you don’t want to buy one, you can always use a cutting board you have at home.

The second element is, obviously, the food. Unlike the also acclaimed “cheese board”, on the charcuterie board you can include practically anything you want. Among the most popular foods to use on charcuterie boards are all types of cold cuts (Serrano ham, york, salami, chorizo, loin…), varieties of cheeses, olives, nuts, fruit, bread sticks or crackers and sauces or jams to go with them.
