Four individual charcuterie board ideas

Never underestimate the power of a good charcuterie board. These individual charcuterie boards are great for smaller parties or when you want to keep your guests engaged with something other than snacking on one dish all evening long!

More than ever, people are conscious of holding small gatherings with buffet free options to minimize risk of touching the same ingredients as everyone else. These individual personalized charcuterie displays are the perfect way to let your guests graze with ease.

Charcuterie (pronounced "shar - koo - tuh - ree") originated in France as a display of cured meats. The term and dish later evolved to display an assortment of meat, cheese, pickled foods, crackers, bread, dips, olives, dried and fresh fruit, and nuts. Charcuterie boards are notoriously arranged beautifully on a serving board of choice.
