As we begin to plan what festive foods will make an appearance on the table come Christmas Day, there’s a new food trend that we should surely make room for: Charcuterwreaths.
And while a festive twist on a classic crowd-pleaser seems redundant—after all, we have Jarcuteries and Charcuterie Chalets—it might just be the seasonal cheer that we need following a rather grim year.
A holiday-inspired update on a Christmas must-have, Charcuterwreaths may be tricky to pronounce but the concept is quite obvious—a charcuterie board in the formation of a Christmas wreath.
With iterations of the trend popping up all over Instagram, we can thank Cynthia Baysinger of Modern Brie, for creating the trend that’s taking the world by storm—and teaching her followers how to create their own.
There are endless variations of the traditional charcuterie board, but this festive design might be the best so far.
Using the usual list of ingredients of cured meats, cheeses, fruits and spreads, charcuterwreaths are arranged in a wreath-like shape on your favourite wooden board.
This delicious food trend is the perfect centrepiece for your holiday celebrations, and with social distancing becoming the new normal, each wreath can be made to the size of the group who will devour it.
From chocolate pretzels and mince pies to prosciutto and brie, the limits for your charcuterwreaths are endless—just as long as it looks beautiful on the Christmas table.
Below, we’ve rounded up the most and drool-worthy and aesthetically pleasing versions of the delightful display for those who are planning to make their own.
