The spread! From left to right going clockwise: Duck rillette with cornichons, sliced french baguette, honey, fig jam, grapes, salami made with black truffles, cheese plate with pomegranate-hazelnut crisps

Ever since coming back from our honeymoon in Italy and France, my husband and I have been obsessed with cheese and charcuterie spreads.

The cheese plate- From left to right: Garlic and herb cheese spread, Aged gouda, Goat cheese (with a blue cheese preparation-AMAZING), Gruyere with peppercorns, soft brie-like cheese (can’t remember the name)

We like it so much that we often make a meal out of it. And that was exactly what we did last Friday.

I love snacking so this is one of my favorite types of meals.

Casey likes to make what he calls “perfect bites”. The following three photos showcase some of these.
