Charcuterie boards are all the rage for any party right now. They are kind of the new-school cheese-and-crackers spread for a get-together.  Usually, these ensembles of delicious food items are put together with lots of variety and essential pieces including meats, cheeses, and vegetables, just like the cheese, crackers, meats combo we've done in the past. The difference, however, is a glow-up treatment to your usual platter spreads that have items in their natural state and focus on a large variety of items.
