Charcuterie Boards Around Marietta Square
Have you tried a Charcuterie Board from one of the many places around Marietta Square? Well listen up, because there are some true culinary artists in our community making boards that are not only visually stunning, but will really tempt your taste buds as well.
Gem City Grazing is owned by a good friend of ours and she can really put together a delicious grazing board or box using the highest quality ingredients and they say their products are a treat for all the senses. Each grazing box includes 2 meats, 2 types of cheese, veggies, hummus, fruit, nuts, dips and other fun surprises! It’s quite full and includes 2 packs of crackers as well.
Grazing boards are custom made and Gem City will work with you to find out how many people you need to serve and the price is based on that and any other special requests. They have recently partnered with Miss Mamie’s Cupcakes to create some new and unique grazing boxes such as the “Lox Box” that is perfect for a brunch picnic in Marietta Square…it includes fresh baked mini bagels, smoked salmon with capers, homemade cream cheese, red onion and other assorted fruit/veggies and jams. We know their quality standards are high at Gem City Grazing, so order a box to take home and enjoy! http://gemcitygrazing.com

The Butcher The Baker has been doing Charcuterie boards for a while and they always use locally sourced artisinal meats and cheeses, house made pickles & mustard, scratch made pate’, seasonal fruits/veggies and in-house made breads/jams to round out the perfect board to share.
They have several board options to choose from, whether you want to try just the cheeses, or just the meats…or combine the two to make for a delicious meal or snack. They recently created a bigger “Party Board” that is huge and can serve between 5-6 people and they make it easy to order on their website, so check out The Butcher The Baker, you won’t be disappointed! https://thebutcherthebakermarietta.com/

Two Birds Taphouse is a favorite spot of ours that offer some delectable boards and we really enjoy the Vegetable Board that has a selection of seasonal grilled vegetables, herb goat cheese cream, chili honey…it looks like a “garden on a board!”
They also offer a more traditional charcuterie option that has Benton’s 18-month aged country ham, summer sausage, house pimento cheese, local artisan cheeses, pickled okra, pickled green beans, strawberry jam & crostini. Although not really a board, you need to try their Deviled Eggs- smoked salt, chives, b&b pickles, candied bacon…we could eat a million of these! Order a craft cocktail or one of the many locally produced beers with your board to make for a perfect happy hour snack. https://www.twobirdstaphouse.com/
