1. Cheddar, Pepperoni, & Pickles
Let’s start with a classic that never fails to impress. Begin by cutting your cheddar cheese block into small, bite-sized cubes. Now, fold up pieces of pepperoni and alternate them with the cheddar cubes on your skewer. To add a burst of tanginess, finish off each skewer with a French touch: Cornichons – the tiny pickles that pack a punch. The result? A perfect balance of sharp, savoury, and tangy flavours that will have your guests coming back for more. This classic combination is perfect for any occasion and sets the tone for a memorable charcuterie experience.
2. Gouda, Salami, Roasted Red Peppers, & Olives
Take your taste buds on a flavour journey with this dynamic combination. Pair the crowd-pleasing salami with a sweet and creamy Gouda, available in a variety of enticing options, from aged and smoky to flavour-infused. Introduce roasted red peppers for smoky sweetness, and olives for that extra salty punch. This skewer is an explosion of flavours, offering a delicious mix of textures and tastes that will leave your guests asking for the recipe. It's a sophisticated option that adds a touch of gourmet flair to your charcuterie creations.
3. Buffalo Mozzarella, Prosciutto, & Cherry Tomatoes
If you're a fan of the classic Italian Caprese salad, you'll love this deconstructed version on a skewer. Layer rich, creamy buffalo mozzarella with the saltiness of the prosciutto and the sweetness of cherry tomatoes. You can elevate the experience by adding layers of fragrant basil and a drizzle of balsamic glaze on top. This skewer is a symphony of flavours that captures the essence of a Mediterranean feast in every bite. Its simplicity and the vibrant combination of fresh ingredients are a wonderful balance of flavours and textures.
