The holidays are quickly approaching, and one of our favorite ways to celebrate is with charcuterie — we mean, quality time with loved ones over charcuterie. Either way, the charcuterie is there. If you love the idea of making roses out of salami and alternating cheese slices to create food art, you need a cheese board that is up to par. From multi-level cheese boards to built-in cheese knives, there's one for every occasion. (Good luck trying to get anyone to move away from the cheese, though.)
