My Charcuterie Board was a hit this summer!

Real Estate Agent with Sotheby's International Realty Canada - Brokerage

I love a good Charcuterie Board and/or a tasty Cheese Board.  Nibblies are my go-to favourite when eating out or serving friends and family.  We had a family get-together last weekend and I knew it was going to be far too hot to be slaving over a hot oven or grill so, Voila . . .

My husband created a 5 foot by 2 foot butcher block board for us and I had great fun in filling it up with goodies:  

A deconstructed Nicoise Salad

Smoked Salmon

Chilled Poached Salmon

Cured Meats

Dried and fresh Fruits & Nuts

2 types of Devilled Eggs (family faves)

Shrimp Hearts

Cucumber Cups with Chicken Salad

Flatbread and Focaccia Bread

Prosciutto wrapped bread sticks and loads of crackers and brushetta

and for the kid at heart: Cheeseburgers on a stick!

We'll probably do this a few more times before the summer is finished and I know it will come in handy during the holidays too but with more seasonal varities of goodies.

Try it and see how your friends and family enjoy it!

Oooooh La La... Gorgeous, Susan!  You put my cheese, sausage and olive plates to shame!  I do make them look pretty, though.  LOL

I'm going to bookmark this for future reference.

Carol Williams I'm sure you make a beautiful plate too!  I don't think we can go wrong with these boards as there is really something for everyone on it (including a particular 88 year old Great Grandmother!)

It is a favorite with us, my mother called it a picnic, and you have to have a great loaf of French bread.  A

Susan,  That is a very attractive display and spread of food.  I think I found the 2 red mice.

Thanks Kathleen Daniels -  good eye on the mice!  (there's more than 2)  I also made tomato lady bugs which were cute and the kids loved them.

I belive you could take up catering as your next profession if you ever tire of RE.

Beautiful display.

That is a beautiful board of scrumptious looking food.  What wines did you service with it?
