An inviting snack

A Charcuterie is an inviting snack to present during entertaining; it usually consists of several meats and cheeses. I usually start with three cheeses.  A hard cheese (Manchego), soft cheese (goat) and a blue (Cashel). Next, a couple cured meats, Prosciutto and  Sopressata.
For a little crunch, add some Marcona almonds, Cornichons, and Castelvetrano olives. Mustard and a sweet garnish such as honey or jam make a nice accompaniment to both the meat and cheese selections. I have found Whole Food’s raspberry rose petal compote pairs quite well with a variety of cheese.  Add some crusty bread or crackers and it is complete. The rectangular slate board with rope handles is from Williams Sonoma, purchased September of this year.
