Easy to assemble and dressed to impress, a charcuterie board with all the trimmings brings holiday guests together like nothing else can.
Iberian cured salami
baguette, sliced and toasted
hard cheese, (parmesan or aged cheddar)
Plan to serve 60 to 90 g of charcuterie per person (about half of that for any tiny guests).
Slice dried, hard sausages into rounds so that they're easy to stack (or make mini "sandwiches"). Try a herbed chorizo and a mild summer sausage.
Add a paper-thin sliced serrano ham, prosciutto or coppa, and arrange loosely. Meats like these are easy for kids to grasp and chew.
Serve it all with something pickled to cut the richness, nuts for crunch, sliced baguette, crackers, a selection of mustards, and dried fruit, jam or chutney for a sweet contrast.
