HEATHER'S CHARCUTERIE TIPS

  • When building a board, look for sweet, salty, sour and sometimes bitter items that will round out the palate.

  • Don't be afraid to try new flavor combinations, even if they seem strange. It's worth it to take a chance and find a pairing that is brilliant and outside of the box. One example is Point Reyes Blue Cheese and Primo Honey with Aji Cristal. It sounds odd, but they work lovely together.

  • The best tip is to have fun and embrace your inner artist!
