The article touches on the origin of the term charcuterie and how it has evolved from its original goal of pork preservation to now being a reason to indulge in delicious meat and cheeses in the company of friends and family. It also stresses that even though there are conventions for what meats, cheeses, wines, and accompaniments pair well together, it is not an exact science and readers should feel free to mix and match the contents of their board based on their preferences. For the meats, it recommends Genoa salami, Prosciutto, Capicola, Sopressata, Coppa, Chorizo, Paté, or Terrine. For the cheese selection, it recommends adding at least one type of soft cheese, one type of hard cheese, and one type of blue cheese to the mix. It also recommends readers pick up small portions of cheese at the supermarket to try before committing to one that they enjoy. For the carbohydrate component, the blog post recommends sliced baguettes, water crackers, grain crackers, toasted flatbread, or sourdough bread. In terms of accompaniments, the blog post lists nuts such as almonds, cashews, and pistachios, fruit such as apples, pears, pitted dates, fresh berries, dried apricots, and figs, pickles such as olives, cornichons, and pepperoncini’s, and other tasty items such as jams, preserves, dips, mustards, honey, and artichoke hearts.

The blog post also touches on the many different charcuterie surface options which include slate, wood, bamboo, marble, stainless steel, and mirrored glass board. When it comes to arranging the board, it appeals to the reader to follow a pattern that gives the board a sense of order and propriety. Starting from a spot on the edge of the board, one should go clockwise alternatively placing meats and cheeses and filling the gaps with accompaniments. The blog post also suggests thinking about the use of negative space to give the contents some room to breathe and to group items that should be enjoyed together.
