I do not know why but I’ve been craving a charcuterie board but I also am trying to be more vegan, so I had a coworker make me a vegan plate once and it is so good but I also love cheese so I am giving some options on that as well. Working weddings I once had to do an entire charcuterie table and it was so hard but also so cool so rather than give detail on how to set it up I am going to give what I would use and you can set it up however you wish. The important thing is to remember is you can put whatever you like in it and to have fun making it! Now, enough talking lets just get to it.
