Winter’s Top Food Trends Are Putting a Twist on Charcuterie Boards

Charcuterie boards are really having a moment this winter—but probably not in the way you think. Passionate foodies around the world are putting a twist on this beloved trend and coming up with alternative charcuterie boards that come in many different flavors and sizes.

Charcuterie Chalets

If you can imagine what a charcuterie board would look like in the form of a chalet, you already know what this trend is all about. Cured meats, cheese, and other charcuterie board ingredients are being used to build edible winter cottages and they’re as festive as it gets.


Sharing is caring when it comes to charcuterie boards, but this mantra doesn’t really work in the age of COVID-19. That’s why jarcuterie experienced a huge surge in popularity recently, as it allows you to serve charcuterie ingredients in individual, jar-sized portions.

Hot Chocolate Boards

If you prefer sweet treats to savory ones, you won’t lack food trends to try this holiday season. Winter 2020 is all about sweet boards, including sundae and hot chocolate boards. The latter option is our personal favorite because it puts the most delicious seasonal beverage front and center.
