Charcuterie For Fall

Who Doesn’t Enjoy A Tasty Spread Of Cheeses, Breads, Dips, Meats, Veggies, Nuts, Jams And Scrumptious Bites?

Charcuterie is a French word that essentially refers to deli meats, however, Americans are taking this type of appetizer board to new levels with deliberately curated textures, colors and interesting morsels. Sometimes, they're even called "grazing tables!" Another bonus is that they appeal to all ages. Either create some make-ahead appetizers, delicious finger foods, or cocktail party snacks for a customized spread -- or consider allowing a Frisco-area specialty business to assemble a food board, such as one of the following (in addition to charcuterie, some culinary teams provide sandwich platters, fruit platters, dessert platters and chocolate-dipped fruits):

Raynbow Eats
16576 Heartleaf Road, Frisco

Chris's Specialty Foods
