Fall picnics call for more than the sandwiches of summer. Pack the fixings for an elegant grazing board.
“Loaded with gourmet cheeses, fresh and dried fruit, charcuterie, honey, chocolate and praline pecans for a sweet treat, this is a great way to enjoy a date night picnic or gather with a few friends at the park for wine and cheese,” said Stephanie Britton, owner of Britton Boards, based in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Britton designs luxury grazing boards, boxes and tables, from casual to fancy, small to large, customizing them to fit any theme, occasion, color and number of people ($40-$185).
The boards turn the standard cheese and charcuterie boards on their heads, filled as they are with an assortment of goodies that people may not think to include, and transforming them into edible works of art.
Depending on the number in their party, picnickers can try their hand at creating a board for a day’s graze in the outdoors. (www.facebook.com/brittonboards)
