Just Charcuterie: “Wow, why didn’t someone think of this before?” That’s the first thing I thought when I found out about CheeseBoarder. There are plenty of places that ship great cheese and great charcuterie meats, but what they do is make beautiful and highly varied charcuterie trays, wrap them very carefully, and ship ready to serve. That’s what makes this such a great gift – your recipient has no fuss, no muss, just take out of the fridge, remove the packaging and mangia! If you have ever assembled your own cheese and salumi platter with extras like olives, figs, nut, pepperoncini, etc. you know there is a lot for slicing, chopping and plating, but here it is all done for you – and done well. CheeseBoarder is like a mail order caterer, and their assortments come in three sizes, Terza (serves 3-4), Mezzo (5-6) and Curata (10-12). Erring on the larger side lets your loved ones graze for days. Each size is offered in an “All Cheese” meatless version, which actually still has the nuts, olives and many extras, or a Cheese and Charcuterie version with lots of meat. For example, the large meat and cheese contains 31 different times, six kinds of cheese, seven kinds of meat and a world of extras, from mustard pistachios to dried Turkish figs, olives, sun dried tomatoes, marcona almonds and so on. A delicious, impressive, fun and exceptionally turnkey gift. Add bread and wine and you have a great dinner (or two or three).
