Charcuterie buffet

Do you love charcuterie?

I love a delicious charcuterie board for lunch.  If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a selection of prepared meats and cheeses, often served with various accompanying sauces/dips.  It makes for a perfect lunch because it’s really light and isn’t filled with carbs to drag down the rest of your day.

My husband was so busy all last week, collaborating with a group to prepare a fantastic charcuterie buffet.  They had been preparing all sorts of meats and sauces that would go with each of them.  He spent a ton of time even last weekend researching recipes that would work for their buffet (using this book as seen above).

I was so proud of him!  He even took charge of making sure the buffet line looked really nice.  He created the chalkboard look making signs for each item!  Take a look:

 

How beautiful is the plate above?  The fresh lox in the shape of roses!

 

Cooking is like an art!

 

I mean… come on…bacon date rolls?  Please give me some!

 

Okay so foie gras and head cheese aren’t my top choices but I know they’re a favorite for many!

 

 

What do you think about charcuterie?  It’s a great to serve for a party, too.  My husband was actually creating each of these, including the sausages from scratch.  However, you can purchase many of these items in a store and slice them into small portions.  Lay them out on a tray and bring them out at your next party – it goes well with wine!  Below are some great options for charcuterie boards!

    WOAH! I love charcuterie. Is your husband a chef? My goodness everything looks gorgeous. My favorite has to be the bacon wrapped dates.
