The original traditional boards were inclusive of a broad supporting cast of cheeses, spreads, crackers, nuts, and produce. But nowadays, especially over the past few years, charcuterie boards have grown, changed, and developed into works of art, limited only by the imagination.

From breakfast, boards to make your own pizza boards to cookie boards, and more, the sky’s the limit.  The best part of charcuterie boards is the flexibility they afford: Scale portions up or down depending on the number of guests, adjust ingredients for dietary needs and preferences, or shop for foods within a specific color palette or region. Now that October is upon us, we’re going to show you just how simple it is to create your own Halloween Charcuterie Board.
