How to Style Your DIY Charcuterie Kit:
1. Decide what surface you’ll be using. You can use your own platter/board or you can use the included box — a great option if you’re taking your charcuterie on the go.
2. Decide the placement of your cheeses & other larger items, such as the side containers. Think about visual balance. I also like to break up the items you have double of and put them on opposite ends, so each item is reachable if you have people sitting on opposite sides. Soft cheeses can be left as is, but it’s nice to have your hard cheeses cut into slices to make it easier for your guests.
3. Place the salami. There are multiple methods that will give your tray an elevated look.
“Quarter Fold Salami River” - First, fold the salami slice in quarters. Stack the salami in your hand first and add a little but of pressure to make them stick together. Build the river in sections in your hand, then place on board or in your box creating a “flow” shape across.
“Salami Rosettes” -
“Half Fold Fans” - The half-fold works great for smaller slices of meat that can’t fully be folded into quarters. Fold them directly in half and layer them into a fan shape on your board.
Ribbons are great for longer slices of meat, like prosciutto. To make a ribbon, fold the prosciutto directly in half lengthwise, then gently layer it back and forth on the board with the fat side facing up.
Things you can add to make it look more full & vibrant: fresh or dried fruit, nuts, greens, sliced baguette, rosemary sprigs, edible flowers.
