A charcuterie board in a bowl is a fun alternative to serve smaller crowds or provide a more intimate feel for a shower or dinner party. All the ingredients of a charcuterie board, arranged beautifully in a bowl.
If you have followed S&S for any time at all, you know that we love our charcuterie boards. They are so simple to put together, and an easy way to make your food look a little more impressive. The key to a great board is a variety of ingredients to add texture and interest. If you are hosting a small gathering or a date night in, you do not always need a big board full of food. Enter the charcuterie in a bowl. I first saw this concept when Stephanie at Cheers & Chews shared hers, and I immediately began looking around my house to see what I had to assemble one.
Grab a glass of wine, and let’s talk charcuterie in a bowl!
You will need a small ramekin, mug, or bowl to build your board in. This bowl is similar to the one that I used. Remember, this concept is to serve one or two people, so you do not need it to be very big.
Now is the time to rummage through your pantry and fridge to see what you have on hand.
Here are some suggestions:
- 2 to 3 varieties of cheeses (hard and soft)
- 1 to 2 varieties of bite-sized meats (salami, prosciutto, ect)
- 1 to 2 fresh veggies (cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers)
- 2 to 3 fresh or dried fruits (grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, apricots)
- Crackers or pretzels
- Fillers, like olives, pickles, nuts, chocolates
