Create a Charcuterie & Cheese platter to share
For a barbeque there's nothing is easier, or tastier than serving a charcuterie platter filled with favorite cold meats, creamy cheeses, tasty dips, crusty breads and crunchy crackers for everyone to enjoy while the steaks are on the grill.
Choose three to five cheeses with a variety of types, shapes and colors. For texture combine a few wheels of semi-hard/hard aged varieties like cheddars, or goudas and perhaps some wedges of brie or goat cheese. Along with the cheeses, be sure to have plenty of cured meats. Some popular options are Salami, Dry Coppa, Prosciutto, and Black Pepper coated Italian Dry Salami. Make sure they are pre-sliced for easy eating.
If your store nearby has a limited deli and gourmet food section, then a great way to get all your internationally cured meats and gourmet cheeses, are from trusted online providers who will deliver the goods right to your door. Some of the top gourmet food vendors are Dartgnan.com (great purveyors of French Prosciutto and hard-to find free-range game), or DiBruno.com (offering a delicious salami sampler), or get a variety of antipasto meats and cheese from igourmet.com. For palate pleasing cheeses, a favorite go-to is Murrays Cheeses murrayscheese.com, they also have all kinds of delicious meats and crackers as well.
Plenty of Fruit for All
Since everyone loves fresh fruit, make sure you pick out an assortment of colorful favorites. Spring is great for strawberries, kiwis, apricots, orange slices, blackberries and perhaps some juicy honeydew melon.
The key keeping things light, but making sure nobody goes away hungry is to supplement the cold cuts with plenty of small snacks. Olives, nuts, colorful bowls of dips or fresh salsa and of course a few plates of rich chocolates are perfect accessories for a Father's Day Barbeque.
Here are two more Charcuterie Club options you may want to consider.
