With the festive season well and truly here, it's time to start considering which food and beverages will make their annual appearance on Christmas Day.
And while the humble charcuterie board is always a certified crowd-pleaser—and yes, that includes Charcuterie Chalets—there's another meat-and-cheese bundle that's sure to excite any foodie.
Introducing: the Jarcuterie.
A 2020-apppropriate update on the fan-favourite, the Jarcuterie is exactly what it sounds like—a charcuterie board in a jar. Blowing up on Instagram, we can thank Suzanne Billings, founder of the Jarcuterie and grazing board business Noble Graze, for the trend that’s taking the world by storm.
The delectable food trend is perfect for the festive season and for 2020 in general. With social distancing becoming the new normal, there’s no wonder why sharing food platters has become rather passé.
Whether you’re respecting the six-feet apart rule or not wanting to cross-contaminate, the snack trend can still work post-pandemic. After all, who doesn’t want their own mini charcuterie all to themselves?
From seasonal fruit and cheese to prosciutto and breadsticks, there are no limits as to what your jarcuterie can include—as long as it looks beautiful on the Christmas table.
Below, we’ve rounded up the most creative—and drool-worthy—versions of the delicious display, whether you’re looking to recreate your own or if you need some future party planning ideas.
