How to make a charcuterie board

There was a time when “snack tray” conjured visions of anemic baby carrots and sad ranch. But those days are gone—in an age of charcuterie-centric IG accounts and boarding everything (candy, burgers, butter???), party guests expect spreads with sex appeal. To help you deliver, we tapped hometown charcuterie board expert @grazingboxsd and several local purveyors to put together this beautiful board. You’ll be the host with the most (delicious cheeses).
