A meat and cheese board, also known as charcuteries, are boards or platters filled with a combination of finger foods. They include a variety of meats, cheeses, crackers, nuts, veggies, fruit, and more. You can make them as big or as little as you'd like which is why charcuteries are perfect for entertaining, snacking and even dinner. The best part is that they are only limited by your imagination!
