Charcuterie boards are all the rage right now. For the last few decades, they were simply called veggie or fruit trays, but add a piece of wood and a fancy design and voila, you have an elevated serving platter.

The word “charcuterie” originated in France and translates to “pork-butcher shop,” according to travel expert.com. While the original French translation refers to pork, modern charcuterie boards include other types of food like pate, cheese, crackers, fruit, nuts and dips. In French, the cook who prepares the meat is called a charcutier.
