I am very excited to share that I recently contributed to Martha Stewart Weddings as their culinary expert on creating crowd-pleasing cheese and charcuterie displays.
Check out my 6 Steps for Curating a Delicious Display HERE.
I also wanted to shared some images from our recent nuptials when I worked with the team at Big Sur Bakery and lovely Lolo of Burst of Bloom to create an 8 foot long display for our wedding guests to nosh on during cocktail hour.
Instead of normal appetizer plates I bought glazed terra-cotta plant saucers (you know, the ones used for garden pots) to use as plates and some giant raw wood boards from West Elm as a base for displaying the cheese and charcuterie. I displayed an entire frame of fresh honeycomb next to the cheese so that guests could scrap wild sage honey directly onto their plates; we had some local bees stop by and help themselves to the comb just as the wedding was getting started. My dad contributed to the charcuterie display with some of his homemade lonzino (also known as lomo in Spain).
The overall vibe was Spanish bodega meets California coastal: we used all stemless bodega-style wine glasses for our guests and farmwood tables and wine barrels throughout the property to bring it all together.
