You can’t call it a charcuterie board unless it includes ready-to-eat meats—I’m an old-school purist, and I will fight you on this point—but we’re lucky in Utah to have many producers making stellar examples of the craft. Add some local cheeses, pickled goodies, artisan spreads, some sweet and savory nibbles, and you’ve got an amazing grazing board that can serve as a meal. Even better: grab local, ready-to-pour canned cocktails, beer, or a bottle of wine to round it all out. Here are some great picks to get you started....Cheers!

2. Creminelli Fine Meats Calabrese and Prosciutto  Calabrese brings a bit of spice to the board with a generous touch of paprika and red pepper; prosciutto is a classic addition thanks to its salty and slightly sweet flavor. creminelli.com
