One of our favorite parts of the fall season is the camaraderie between friends and family during potlucks and get-togethers. What makes it even better is the communal experience of eating delicious meals together, like a decadent cheeseboard.
This season, gather your friends around the table and celebrate all that the season has to offer by building an autumn-inspired cheeseboard. Check out our tips below.
First, we recommend using a cheeseboard made out of acacia wood, like this Uncommon James Cheeseboard, as it’s less porous (aka they absorb less water from the food) and it’s durable enough for when you’re cutting cheese. Plus, the rustic wood finish adds a nice charm to your charcuterie spread.
Now, onto tips on food presentation and selection:
1. Offer a diverse selection of cheeses, meats, fruits, and jams/honey. The key is to have a good mix of sweet, savory, and salty foods! Tip: Serve a mild, creamy cheese and a sharp, dry cheese for a variety in texture and saltiness.
2. Make sure to have one or two centerpieces, whether it’s blocks of cheese or mini pumpkins. Then build your stacks of meats, nuts, and fruits around these blocks. Tip: Place different shades of food next to each other for a colorful feast!
3. Here are a few foods we recommend for an autumn-themed charcuterie board:
- Pumpkin seeds
- Candied pumpkin spice pecans
- Pumpkin butter
- Fig jam
- Meats of choice
- Cheese of choice
- Crackers of choice
