Charcuterie boards of all sizes, scales, and styles are certainly having a moment. In 2021, you're no longer limited to prosciutto and Parmesan. (Although meat and cheese boards are delicious!) Now everything from hot chocolate "charcuterie" to sports-inspired boards to healthyish fruit and veggie appetizer platters exist, and we think of so much more than preserved meats when we say "charcuterie." Yes, even though that is the strict definition of the term.
Sweet or savory and regardless of the occasion, we love the board trend for how they showcase a wide variety of flavors and colors and cut down on dish duty since everything is served in the same place. You can dress them up for parties or holidays, or dress them down for a nosh-all-night family dinner. Plus, many of the latest charcuterie board options are more about assembly than cooking. Talk about a brilliant meal option when you're healing from a bad bout of pandemic cooking fatigue.
The key to any charcuterie board is having A. the right edible building blocks, and B. the correct vessel(s). The answer to A is only limited by your imagination and local market supply, and we just discovered the ultimate solution to B — and it's now it's $10 off.
Introducing the ChefSofi Cheese Cutting Board Set, the top-ranked cheese board on Amazon right now that has garnered more than 1,100 five-star reviews.
It's constructed with durable acacia wood that features a handcrafted indentation along the edge for a cozy home for crackers or crostini. On the flip side, the board comes complete with four, made-to-snuggle-right-in ceramic bowls for anything that might drip around or roll off the board, such as olives, nuts, spreads, or fruit. The rest of the 13-inch board can hold plenty of meats, cheeses, or other fixings, and each board comes with four heavy-duty stainless steel knives that can be stored right inside the swivel-top board.
A peek at the reviews revealed that this was a hit as a host and holiday gift in 2020, and there's never been a better time to snag one yourself. The board, which one fan raves is a "beautiful addition to the table; everyone commented on how it looked! Easy to clean and maintain," is now 47 percent off for a limited time.
