How Do You Pronounce Charcuterie?

When telling people about the platters that I’ve been putting together, I find myself stumbling over the word “charcuterie.” The word “charcuterie” is French and refers to a platter of cured meats or cold cuts and cheese. Pronounced “shar-coot-ery,” the concept of the board has evolved overtime to be artistic and extravagant displays of all sorts of foods.

The great thing about charcuterie platters is the fact that you can mix and match the ingredients as much as you like! There are a wide variety of cured meats and even more variations of cheese that you can use.

How Do You Make a Cheap Charcuterie Board?

The great thing about these boards is that you can be as creative and selective with your ingredients as you’d like!  For cheaper options you might consider looking for fruits and vegetables that are currently in-season. Although I felt that strawberries and grapes would add that bright red for Valentine’s Day, you can substitute them for sliced apples or other more inexpensive fruits.

  1. Hello there! This is actually my first time hearing about charcuterie boards. I am actually glad you took the time to introduce and explain for those who are hearing about it for the first time. I definitely had no idea how to pronounce the word. I also had no idea that there were so many styles to choose from. I might have to get one when I start earning more income. Thanks for creating this post!

  2. This is definitely the first time I heard about this topic. I am also happy you mentioned fruits like strawberries and apples. I am diabetic and so I am always looking for ways to control diabetes and also to ease the boredom of sometimes eating the same foods.

    I love how these boards can be used to appeal to our tastebuds and we can still keep it healthy. Much appreciated.

  3. Loved this article.

    I had never heard of Charcuterie Boards before reading this article.

    The funny thing is, I have been making attractive meat-‘n’ cheese platters or veggie trays for years not realizing there was a fancy name.

    I used to make a fruit and veggie tray to leave out for my kids when they were sick with colds and flu.

    They didn’t feel like eating but would pick away at these platters I set out.

    They usually ate everything but didn’t feel overwhelmed by having to eat a meal.

    Thanks for giving it a name and some new trays to try out.

  4. I always feel fancy using words like “charcuterie.” I did know how to pronounce it, but I definitely have to double check how to spell it!

    I love all the bamboo charcuterie boards. They look great and are sustainable for the environment too.

    Most of my meal prepping these days aims to be kid friendly. Do you have any recommendations for making kid friendly charcuterie boards?

I don’t typically think of all the fine details but having quality products and the correct utensils can make all the difference!

  6. Hi Alyse,

    I love charcuterie boards, and your article comes at the right time when I search online to make one for our party next month. From your sharing, I might pick up the marble one, which looks chic.

    Your tip to use gluten-free ingredients or veggies to make a healthy board worth a try too. Thanks for sharing many creative ideas to prepare this, and I can’t wait to see the joy and happiness when my friends see what I make for the party.

    Cheers,
