Building your charcuterie platter is as easy as one-two-three!
One: Choose your favourite meats. We love a combination of freshly sliced, in store delights like classic Thuringer sausage, spicy salami, and wonderfully seasoned turkey breast. Add the taste of the Prairies with our Co-op Signature Smokehouse meat sticks, in flavours like steak spice, kaszubska, and pepperoni. Finish your selection with our Co-op Gold Charcuterie Trio featuring unforgettable flavours of salami suitable for every palette at your party.
Two: Choose your favourite cheeses. Now here’s where you can really have fun! Select a combination of soft (think: goat cheese, Boursin, and brie) and hard (think: Co-op Gold Grand Trunk Cheese) cheeses, then add a few classics like Armstrong Marble Cheddar. Round out the tray with a decadent Camembert and a stinky bleu or two (if you’re into it!).
Three: Choose your favourite add-ons. Round off your charcuterie platter with additions like Co-op Gold Pure unpasteurized honey, dried fruits like apricots and Craisins, and small bowls filled with mustard (hot, honey, or classic all work). Of course, your platter’s not complete without a freshy baked bread, baguette, or loaf to smear those flavours on. In-store baked Cheddar Sticks or Co-op Gold Black Pepper Swiss Loaf are fan favourites, and a good French or Sourdough Loaf does the trick beautifully. Finish with almonds, stuffed olives, and pickled vegetables (baby carrots and dill pickles are our favourite!).
