I am so glad to see that the idea of meat and cheese coming together on a surface is back as a popular snack and even a dining experience. We have come a long way from the pepperoni and cheese board but let's face it those simple charcuterie boards are delicious too.

At the end of 2022, the cheese board with fruit and meats returned to the guest table at parties and I have to say I was happy to see those slices of salami back front, and center at parties. I am also really happy to see that a greater variety of fruit and cheeses are making an appearance too, Even the boards they are being served on have been taken up a notch.
