Common Charcuterie Board Questions

How to make a small charcuterie board?
When shopping for your favorite charcuterie items, there are a few elements you’ll want to keep in mind. Those are: salty, sweet, savory, and spicy. As long as you have these elements, you’ll have a winning charcuterie board!

How to arrange a charcuterie board?
A classic charcuterie board consists of a wooden tray or cutting board, but don’t worry if you don’t have those! You just want a vessel big enough (or small enough, in this case) to make your snacks look abundant, and not sparse. I like to start in the middle with small items and work my way out, placing the larger items as I go.
