Roots To Table Highlights Plating Tips For Small Charcuterie Boards Shared By The Fit Peach

The Fit Peach, a blog that shares easy recipes for the health-focused foodie, has published an article that gives tips on how to make an easy, simple, and small charcuterie board. Roots To Table, the manufacturer of the Bamboo Cheese and Charcuterie Board Set, a popular Amazon’s Choice product in its category, is highlighting the article to help its customers make the best use of its flagship product.

The writer for the website, Ansley Beutler, introduces the blog post by saying, “Learn how to whip up a show-stopping easy, simple, and small charcuterie board that's sure to impress your guests! Whether you're making a small charcuterie board for two or a modest gathering, get all the tips and tricks on how to make a perfect board. For everyone from beginner to pro, the step-by-step instructions will guarantee you create an epic easy charcuterie board.”

The blog post then shares some expert tips for plating the perfect small charcuterie board. It begins by urging readers to not worry about the composition of the ingredients too much as charcuterie is not an exact science and it is an endeavor worth trying, as long as one is having fun. Second, it advises readers to start with the items available in one’s pantry as it is the best way to get started quickly. Third, while plating up the board, the article recommends starting with the largest items first to give the board the semblance of an organized look.

Next, the blog post dives into the various components that make up a charcuterie board including cheeses, meats, crackers, snacks, and finally, fillers. It is recommended to pick two or three types of each to give the taste buds some variety and to make the cheeseboard look appetizing. When it comes time to choosing a board to plate up the ingredients, the blog post suggests items like a salad plate, dinner plate, charger, or cookie sheet. Once home cooks grow to love the charcuterie concept, they can always upgrade their experience by switching to a custom, feature-rich charcuterie board such as the one offered by Roots To Table.

When it comes time to pick the exact ingredients that one can add to a charcuterie board, Ansley picks a few favorites from each broader category. She recommends selecting at least 1 soft cheese and 1 hard cheese to add different textures to the charcuterie board. Some salient picks are soft goat cheese, sharp cheddar, Manchego cheese, brie, smoked cheese, and whipped cheese. Similarly, one should opt for 2 different styles of meat, preferably one sliced thicker and one sliced thinner. Ansley’s favorite meats for a charcuterie board are Salami, Speck, Prosciutto, and Soppressata.

Ansley then presents a step-by-step guide to plating up a charcuterie board such that all its ingredients are easily accessible to everyone while making it look appealing as well. The snack bowls should go onto the board first as they are fixed in shape and offer a great opportunity to build the rest of the board around them. The next items to be plated are the cheeses which should be sliced for flexibility and should also be placed at the opposite ends of the board for easy reachability. Next, the thicker meats should be stacked in a pile while the thinner meats should be pinched into little folds and then laid out in a row. One can even try flower-like folds with the circular thin meats to add a chef-like panache. After the meats are placed, it is time to arrange the carbs on the board which includes the crackers and the bread. Finally, the rest of the items should fill in the gaps on the board to give it some much-needed volume.

Readers who find the concept of charcuterie boards appealing and want to try out the several ideas suggested by Ansley should consider picking up the Roots To Table Bamboo Cheese and Charcuterie Board Set on for a complete charcuterie experience.
