Charcuterie



Let's talk cheese/charcuterie  boards! I've always been intimidated and stick to one cheese + crackers,  but I've recently learned  it's really as easy as 1-2-3. Whole Foods makes it super easy with the best cheese selection ever. 


I shared an Insta-story while making this board on Thanksgiving and had some questions on which cheeses I used so I wanted to share here. 

So, the day before Thanksgiving the boys were all napping, so I snuck away to Whole Foods for some flowers and items to make a charcuterie board. I started with a goat cheese topped with jam and cranberries. It was so pretty! I asked the gal behind the counter what other cheeses I should go with and told her I liked Manchego. Since Manchego is made from Sheep's milk, we had goat and sheep represented, so we went with one that was made from cow's milk. I asked for a variety of color so she grabbed the Isigny St. Mere Mimolette 12 month. It was a gorgeous orange tone and was delicious. SO good. I finished everything off with a simple Tillamook smoked medium cheddar - delicious but not intimidating to anyone who doesn't like crazy cheeses ;)


1. So you've got cheese. Add some citrus around the edges. Bonus if you can get some with greenery still attached.
2. Next, add crunch with nuts and crackers. Marcona almonds are fancy and delicious, but any kind of almond is a good choice.
3. Finally, add your meat & olives. I grabbed a spanish deli selection of uncruced salchichon, Jamon Serrano and uncured chorizo. SO good. I also just grabbed some olives from the olive bar based on color. Some green, some kalamata. Baddabing. 

I told you it was easy as one, two, three! You can also add some jams if you'd like. Also optional, greenery such as eucalyptus or rosemary. 



Happy charcuterie board making. :)

love.

  1. Por razones perfectamente buenas, un anuncio de embajador rara vez provoca más que un vistazo en el mundo de los relojes, pero cuando se hace bien una asociación de marcas,replicas relojes y por las razones correctas, todos pueden sacar algo de eso, incluidos los fanáticos de los relojes. Afortunadamente, el "Surfer Squad" recientemente reunido de Breitling se está formando sorprendentemente para caer en el último campamento, al menos en mi libro, con el debut del nuevo reloj Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown edition. Ahora, tenga en cuenta que este no es un reloj completamente nuevo: solo agrega una nueva esfera y un giro sostenible al Superocean II interno existente que cubrimos durante Baselworld este año, en forma de nylon reciclado 'Econyl' OTAN correa gracias a replicas de relojes un claro vínculo con la iniciativa de preservación del océano del miembro de Breitling Squad Kelly Slater.
