The Authority On Cheese & Charcuterie

Thanksgiving cheese and charcuterie gift baskets are a fantastic choice for celebrating the holiday season. They offer a variety of delicious artisanal cheeses, cured meats, and accompaniments that both hosts and guests can enjoy. Each basket should include several cheese selections such as cheddar, brie, Gouda or goat cheese. Popular cured meats like salami and pepperoni are easy to find to stash in a gift basket. Remember to add some accompaniments like crackers, bread, jam, olives, nuts and a bottle of wine.
The words charcuterie and cheese board are often used to describe the same thing, but there are notable differences between the two culinary platters. One reason for not using the proper names is the pronunciation of charcuterie. It’s a gourmet masterpiece with ingredients that have been carefully curated and then artistically arranged. If you mispronounce it, it’s easy to see that there’s more to it than just a meat and cheese platter tossed together minutes before guests arrive.
Many still use meat and cheese trays or cheese plates when planning food and appetizers for a party or event. Some of you may even recall your parents or grandparents slicing and arranging their party platters. These homemade platters did the job but needed to be more high-quality and visually appealing. Today, as our palettes grow more sophisticated and our food knowledge increases, we prefer carefully curated meats and cheeses sliced and plated with the appearance of edible art. We call this culinary creation a charcuterie and cheese board.

Shopping for a gift for the cheese enthusiast in your life? Let us help you find that perfect present for the curd-obsessed people on your gift list. From artisan cheeses to the perfect cheese slicer, there is something for every food fanatic.

Cheese Serving Accessories

True cheese lovers are not ripping open plastic packages of American cheese. They are enjoying a variety of handmade cheeses and need the tools of the trade, so to speak. Beautiful platters, boards and trays for presenting top-quality cheese are always a thoughtful idea.

Reusable Cheese & Charcuterie Board

Give the gift of a reusable wooden board for serving and enjoying cheese platters with gourmet spread and condiments. The beautiful wood serving board included with each charcuterie board order from Boarderie is made from Acacia wood.

Knives Made Specifically for Cheese

A high-quality cheese knife set would be a fantastic gift, as there are different knives for different types of cheese. Who knew? Proper etiquette states that you should only cut one type per knife when slicing cheese. A well-made wire slicer or planer also comes in handy when enjoying semi-soft cheeses. Each Boarderie charcuterie order includes bamboo cutlery kits for serving.

Give the Gift of Artfully Arranged & Ready-To-Serve Gourmet Cheese

Cheese connoisseurs will love having a beautiful variety of handmade cheeses delivered to their door. Boarderie makes it easy to gift a cheese board. We eliminate all the prep work for you and your gift recipient. Everything is pre-sliced, chopped and assembled before packing. Just remove the carefully wrapped platter and start grazing.

When someone you know loses a loved one, such as a relative or spouse, it's not unusual to be unsure of what to do or say. During this time, the deceased's family and friends need consolation, but many people fail to express their condolences due to a loss of words or being unsure how to help. We often send a card or a floral arrangement, hoping it's enough.
Are you looking for great birthday gift ideas for a meat lover? Before charcuterie became an overnight craze, you had to get creative and repurpose kitchen items like cutting boards and serving trays. Meat and cheese selections were often limited to those once-popular summer sausage gift baskets accompanied by melted cheese and stale crackers.
