In case you missed it, charcuterie boards are the thing right now. It seems that every Instagram influencer and lifestyle blogger is posting chirpy videos proudly displaying their elaborate cheese and meat creations. Of course, one of the keys to building the best charcuterie board for any occasion is, well, the charcuterie itself—from creamy Brie to nutty Manchego to salty prosciutto. But while what you’re serving is important, what you’re serving it on is just as much so.
Picking the perfect platter for your cheese board isn’t a task to be taken lightly. Whether it’s made of marble, acacia wood, bamboo, slate or something else entirely, you can find charcuterie boards in almost every size, shape, design and style right now. We’ve scoured all our favorite home goods and kitchen retailers to find the best cheese boards on the market.
Psst: These serving platters aren’t just for cheese, either. You can get creative and whip up a breakfast charcuterie board, a baked potato board or even a pizza board (yes, really). Happy entertaining!
Slab Glass Charcuterie Board
Not all charcuterie boards feature wood or marble. Take this slab glass board, for instance, which is crafted from recycled materials. It’ll look as classy displaying hunks of cheese as it will doubling as a chocolate charcuterie board with a smattering of sweets.
Psst! Love your charcuterie spreads but hate the prep? These charcuterie boxes are just what you need.
