This cheese board is looking sharp. Making the perfect charcuterie board is more complicated than it seems, as you need to balance the meats, cheeses, pickles, crackers, and sauces, so there is an assortment of flavours. But what if you could skip all the work and get a delicious charcuterie in Ottawa delivered to your home? Gourmet Graze Ottawa specializes in sweet and savoury drool-worthy grazing boxes.
The classic is the savoury box (more on that below), but the brunch board is the perfect way to start the day. Plus, the festive dessert board is sure to be a hit, as it has all the holiday treats you crave like gingerbread cookies, cranberry pistachio fudge, chocolate-dipped strawberries and more.
When ordering, you can pick between four sizes the small (2-3 people), the regular (4-6 people), large (6-8 people), and party size (12+ people).
The Savoury Board
The Gourmet Graze Ottawa sent me a charcuterie box for my review, which was nearly too pretty to eat. As always this in no way will affect my review below.
The massive feast contained a huge assortment of artisan soft & hard cheese and delicious meats.
But it didn’t stop there. There were ample types of crackers, nuts, dried fruit, vegetable, Pocky (a Japanese pretzel stick covered in chocolate), fresh herbs, nuts, and pickles.
I was delighted to find such an assortment of fresh berries too. It had grapes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, and grapes.
But some of my favourite bites were in the mini containers. There were multiple spreads, and I loved adding the pesto to the meat and tomatoes.
The massive amount of food inside could easily feed more than the suggested amount for dinner. I found the number of high-quality products impressive. To make this yourself at home, it certainly would cost more than the price on the box, and I don’t know about you, but there is no way I could make it look this good without spending hours.
Without question, I can’t praise this product enough, and I certainly will be ordering from them in the future as I want to try the other trays.
