food life quotes Jan 17, 2023

The best things about a charcuterie board (or cheese board if you're not feeling the meaty bits) is it LOOKS impressive but literally anyone can do it, and, with a bit of creative flare and a few small bowls, you have an instragram-worthy charcuterie board for your social media! Scroll to the bottom for 25 charcuterie board caption ideas.

The perfect charcuterie board is a dream come true for a cheese lover. I know this because I am one.

It's the best way to eat cheese for dinner and get away with it.

Yes, you can add some fresh fruit (in fact I insist - it looks fresh and vibrant) but the best part really is the different types of cheeses!

A charcuterie board is incredibly versatile, because you can add whatever you fancy. It can be used as the ultimate appetizer, holiday party food, to accompany a wine night (so people don't get too drunk), or for a quiet night in by the fire, like this one I did last year, when you want the holiday season to just keep going.

While the classic is a savory version, I do love a sweet one too.

How to create the perfect charcuterie board

Frankly, I don't think there is a wrong way to do a charcuterie board but the first step is to decide what type of board you want to make. The easy way to do this is to think about the people coming and the vibe of the evening.

  • What's the occasion?
  • Do you have veggies or vegans coming?
  • How about kids?
  • Will you be siting around a table? Or near a fire? Or near a cream rug?
  • Will your guests respect the cream rug?!

All this needs to be taken into consideration before you can make a good charcuterie board!

Different Types of Boards - Ingredients


The main ingredient is, of course, blocks and blocks of cheese; hard cheese, soft cheeses, smelly cheese, blue cheese, etc. You get the picture.

A way to get a variety of different cheese options, including vegan cheeses, is to visit your local cheese shops and ask them to recommend a selection for your board. If you're a more confident cheese eater, your local grocery stores will also be full of good value options.

And for the presentation you can either leave each block of cheese whole or cut into slices like this board above from Kath Eats.


For holiday cheeseboards or a vegan charcuterie board you will be skipping this! But for the meat lovers and a more varied board, add your traditional meats; Hard salami and rolls of prosciutto all look great and taste yummy.


Add grapes, slices of strawberries, blueberries or raspberries all add pops of colour. Or add veggies, olives, chutneys and nuts like this board from Modern Honey.

If you're into carbs, pretty much anything goes; freshly cut bread, crackers, prawn crackers, crisps, whatever you fancy really.

And to drink? A selection of alcoholic or non-alcoholic red wines or sweet wines or even beers would go down a treat.

Create the perfect caption - 25 Charcuterie Board Captions 

Now you've created your instagram-worthy charcuterie board, you need to get it on the Gram as a reel (and I've lots of song ideas below) or carousel with the perfect caption! Feel free to use one of mine.

I'll be honest, most of mine involve cheese: a cheese quote and/or cheese puns inspired by my favorite kind of music ... For example, a reel of your board using the Beatles song Let it be with the caption: "Let it Brie"? Perfection.
