“What is required for a charcuterie ,to be appeasing to anyone, holds up in just about any climate and every crowd. Young or mature audiences. Along with that it can be the appetizer or the meal."

Pairing your charcuterie with the perfect beverages. Doesn’t have to be a huge thought process.

Champagne in it’s effervescence always pairs well with the creaminess of cheeses and breads. Red wines will compliment the meats you have displayed.

Consider local ciders and even whisky as a great pairing with the breads, meats and cheeses as well.
