$30 Charcuterie Board vs $130 Charcuterie Board | But Cheaper

$30 Charcuterie Board vs $130 Charcuterie Board | But Cheaper

Charcuterie boards have a tendency to be overly expensive. I’m talking about dropping between $100-$300 on a single board! And yeah, I understand the quality of food you’re buying is worth it… but we can definitely make some great choices for cheaper that ultimately taste and look the same.

    I’m glad we feel the same way about blue cheese

    I found my tribe!!! I HATE BLUE CHEESE…it tastes like acetone to me

  4. Violetspider on August 24, 2022 at 1:45 am

    So … It’s only 30 worth of materials,not 30 in total. That’s deceiving. Pp will think you can buy a nice one for 30 or even 130. Not if you want it to last more than 1 year max. Oh … you mean the food…lol.

    I am convinced that charcuterie boards are just adult lunchabuls… don’t @ me

  18. kpj on August 24, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Josh !! If you don’t like blue cheese I highly recommend shropshire it’s salty amd buttery and a little sharp. Really good

  19. I’m Pretti Escobar on August 24, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Ok but why you beat the Bleu cheeses ass like that 😂😂😂😂

  20. Y Y on August 24, 2022 at 2:04 am

    It might be blasphemous to some, but you could turn the cream cheese into an avocado dip or French onion dip. On our boards we usually mix it up with expensive and cheaper cheeses, quince paste, dried apricots and some dips with crackers that suit (hummus usually features on it). We also throw antipasto veges (eggplants, sun dried tomatoes, marinated artichokes and peppers) on there.

  24. Atticus Denzil on August 24, 2022 at 2:07 am

    too much cheddar on the cheaper board, that just jump in your eyes when there’s too much of it

  25. Caroline A on August 24, 2022 at 2:11 am

    Hey guys, VO mistake on the gastrique. We edited in me saying water when it should have been VINEGAR!!! Idk how that happened but it’s 1 cup vinegar and 1 cup water! Papa love u very sorry I’m only human please forgive me. : _ )

  32. zaphodbond on August 24, 2022 at 2:18 am

    "Mom can we buy charcuterie?" Mom : "No, we already have charcuterie at home" (proceed to serve boiled onions and baloney.)

  33. sista love on August 24, 2022 at 2:19 am

    Import cheese in Canada has the highest tariffs a nice triple cream Brie from France about 300 grams will set you back $17. Let’s not talk about the other ones. A good charcuterie heavy on cheese will set you back about $200.

  34. Batje Vier on August 24, 2022 at 2:20 am

    I wouldn’t really call this a charcuterie since that normally only consists of meats (although the term is used rather loosely lately) i’d prefer the italian word antipasto to describe these platters.
    The most important part of an antipasto is to adjust it to your guests. In my personal experience meats and cheeses should be sparingly used. Luxury fruits (Dried and fresh), veggies, olives, Nuts, bread and toast should be the vast majority of an antipasto.
    Aim for artisanal/higher quality meat and cheeses that have a distinctive taste, but still appeal to the vast majority of your guests. You don’t want your guests to cram themselves with fatty meats and cheese, you want a light balanced meal (especially when it’s before or after dinner)

  35. The Banana Killer 🍌 on August 24, 2022 at 2:24 am

    I literally watched this just now while high and got so turned on by watching this 😂😂😂 Omg I feel shameful with how much the cream cheese drizzle did for me 🫠🫠🫠🫠

  36. Ulysses D on August 24, 2022 at 2:24 am

    Loving the beat at the end, I was going to start freestyling

  37. Emil Rasmussen on August 24, 2022 at 2:24 am

    I’m as a European amazed how expensive fruits, cheese and aged meats are in the US!

  38. frugal Mum on August 24, 2022 at 2:25 am

    Cream cheese ideas:

    Roll up assorted combinations separately with choice of herbs, spices, etc to increase flavour variety at minimum extra cost.

    Buy gourmet sausages (one of each) from a decent butcher, cook, cool, thin slice.

    Add wild foraged berries, greens, edible flowers etc

    Make your own watercrackers.

    Use fancy stale clearance breads to make tiny toasties.

  39. Gail Valdez on August 24, 2022 at 2:27 am

    I hate blue cheese too, it’s so gross 🤢

  40. Phoebus Apollo on August 24, 2022 at 2:27 am

    I could never eat from a charcuterie board with friends or guests, I’d need the whole board to be satisfied. And I don’t think it’s good etiquette to munch away while hoarding a board to yourself while your guests are hungry.

  41. Susan Sarver on August 24, 2022 at 2:28 am

    I love Blue Cheese dressing.

  42. ZheeYoYo on August 24, 2022 at 2:28 am

    your energy is OUTRAGEOUS. Keep do.

  43. Arkylie on August 24, 2022 at 2:28 am

    Gives me some ideas for where to go cheap and where to kick it up a notch! Take it easy on the cheeses, try for a nicer apple (Granny Smith? please — try Pink Lady, Rockit, Honeycrisp, or my current favorite, Cosmic Crisp), go good with the nuts (pistachios and cashews for me), and try something cheap but fancy with the cream cheese. I’d try stirring cream cheese into salsa, and I do like your idea about the baguette bites ^_^ I could see adding them alongside some Wheat Thins and Chicken in a Biscuit or even just basic Ritz.

  45. Star Light on August 24, 2022 at 2:31 am

    So this means I can have dunkaroos and fruit snacks charcuterie isn’t off the table right?

  46. Everything but the Girl Fan 76 on August 24, 2022 at 2:33 am

    Is it me, or are the cheap meats more appetizing than the expensive meats.

  47. William McNeil on August 24, 2022 at 2:34 am

    um where do i buy a honeycomb ?

  48. Taleshia Ambo on August 24, 2022 at 2:39 am

    This was great! I learned a lot and kept laughing🤣

  49. Alex Smith on August 24, 2022 at 2:40 am
