40 DIY Charcuterie Innovations

From Antipesto Snack Packs to Artisan Alcohol-Infused Cheeses

— June 20, 2020 — Lifestyle
These DIY charcuterie innovations range from antipesto snack packs to artisan, alcohol-infused cheeses.

With social distancing in full effect as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, consumers are re-embracing at-home simplicities and are recreating their favorite restaurant menu items in the comfort of their own home. DIY charcuterie creations are just one of the fun ways to recreate restaurant experiences and are driving food and design brands to offer a selection of niche and artisan products. Additionally, the art of cheese plates and chacuterie boards is being perfected across Instagram and TikTok platforms with a number of specialized accounts showing consumers step-by-step tutorials for the perfect spread.

Home decor product standouts include the wood-crafted Nambé Harmony Cheese Board along with Anna Rablabs' rose quartz serving platter from retailer GEARYS. When it comes to food and pantry staples, Aldi's alcohol-infused cheeses stand out -- with flavors Whisky Business, Boozeberry Vodka Cheddar and Gaelic Glory offered -- along with the award-winning Cheese Pairings Collection by Blake Hill that features artisan jams and spreads. For those seeking a vegan charcuterie alternative, options like Muscle Food's plant-based 'Crispy Facon' kit and Nuttin Ordinary's clean cashew cheese make diet-specific creations easier than ever.
