Oh, the charcuterie of it all!

Raise your hand if you love to snack.

Big spreads, small and every type in between charcuterie has been around for over 10,000 years and continues to bring people together. You can hire professionals to make your spread or watch a tutorial on TikTok to turn salami into roses. Did you know there are over 18,000 cheeses? Each pairs awesome with something sweet, salty and or savory. Add wine or a sparkling cider and now it's a real party, am I right?

The options are endless so before you get overwhelmed. Take some inspiration from the gallery below. Yakima Valley you're not messing around! I've eaten a lot, perused more and have been blown away by what's happening in these pictures.

What is this magic spelling out phrases with chocolate letters? Where did you find those? Spending Christmas devouring a six foot spread sounds WONDERFUL. Even the little ones are being served up their own versions and though not every cheese, meat and more is identified
