The mild flavor of brie cheese lends it to lots of different food pairings. Traditional pairings for brie cheese include lots of fruit, but also some savory options. Many fruits are sweet and acidic and these qualities for beautifully with the thick and creamy consistency of brie and the mild buttery and savory flavor.
Specific fruits include apple, pear, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, figs, peach, and apricot. I always prefer brie cheese to be served with plain bread or crackers as its milk flavor can be easily overwhelmed with common seasonings such as garlic and onion, garden vegetable or cracked pepper.
What can I put on a vegan charcuterie board is probably the question that is asked most often in forums for charcuterie lovers and charcuterie businesses. I have been keeping an eye on that space for a while now, and noted down all of the great answers, especially the unique or unexpected ones.
So, here is my round up of vegan charcuterie ideas, loosely separated into theatrical categories ranging from center stage (the focal items on a charcuterie) and side stage (hovering just out of the spotlight but still important), to back stage (the somewhat boring, but necessary items) and glitterati (the garnishes and decorations that make your board look like a work of art).
Serving a cheese or charcuterie platter as soon as your dinner party guests walk through the door gives you more time to focus on cooking or socializing, it has diverse ingredients so appeals to everyone, and will keep guests chatting about the exotic and delicious ingredients you have included on it!
