Boarderie is Easy & Convenient
The charcuterie and cheese board trend has been a sensation for many years now. Once the trend caught fire, it didn’t stop… we now even have dessert boards and butter boards and it’s no surprise why.
There’s something amazing about having a little bit of everything right at your fingertips, ready to graze on. It makes our taste buds do a happy dance, but the preparation that goes into a board is a lot of work sometimes.
Sometimes it’s nice to have things pre-made and ready to go for celebrations and special occasions.. or just to have around the house… and even takes the guesswork out of giving a gift.
Whether you’re a fan of bold, spicy flavors or prefer something more subtle, tangy or savory, there’s something for everyone. Each ingredient is carefully chosen to complement the others.
Expect a tasty variety of meats, including prosciutto, salami, and chorizo, as well as a range of artisanal cheeses, such as brie, cheddar, and gouda.

Because who doesn’t love grazing throughout the day? 😉
You honestly don’t need a reason to pamper yourself and be treated to something tasty.
Admittedly, my best friend and I love breaking out a bottle of wine, lounging around in our jammies to our favorite show, and snacking on charcuterie all. day. long.
Boarderie has overnight shipping, so if you know your bestie is coming over the next day, it’s perfect and super easy. You just take the board out of the box and voila! Girls day!

Boarderie made the Guinness Book of World’s Records for largest charcuterie board in the world.
My Boarderie Review
Even though this is a brand collaboration, as always, all opinions are my own.
Are you a cheese and charcuterie board fanatic like I am? Any chance I get to order one at a restaurant and bar, I usually do. I also enjoy making my own boards at home. Chances are, if you’re reading this blog, you do too!
When Boarderie reached out to me to review one of their boards, I was excited.
My first thought when choosing my board was, “They look beautiful, who am I going to share this with?”. My second thought: “One less mess for me to clean up”. But, I didn’t realize how much that second statement was true until I received the board and was taking it out of the box.
My Board: Arte Cheese & Charcuterie
Looking at their website, it was hard to choose which board I wanted. Each of them is truly a foodie masterpiece, with an array of artisanal cheeses, meats, fruits, nuts, candy, crackers, and spreads all arranged to perfection.
I ended up choosing Boarderie’s Arte Cheese & Charcuterie Board.

How it Tasted
Sometimes, it’s hard knowing what goes well with what. They took all the guesswork out of it and I must say, they did a great job at pairing, creating a harmonious blend of sweet, salty, tangy, and savory flavors. There were a lot of standout flavor combinations.
The food was good quality too. The meats were tender and flavorful, with just the right amount of saltiness and spice. The cheeses were soft and creamy or sharp and tangy, depending on the variety. The nuts added texture, while the crackers provided a satisfying crunch, rounding out the flavor profile of the board.
One of my favorite items on the board was the peppered salami which paired perfectly with the espresso pecorino cheese, which had a slightly nutty flavor. I also enjoyed eating it with the chocolate covered espresso beans.
Another standout on the board was the truffle salami, which had a rich, earthy flavor that was complemented by the sharp cheddar cheese. The fig spread added a sweet and slightly tart flavor that balanced the saltiness of the meats and cheeses.
Vegetarian and Gluten Free Options
If you have family and friends with dietary restrictions, Boarderie caters to different needs by offering a range of vegetarian and gluten-free options. Shop their meat free version of this board here.
Of course you never know what things really look like until they arrive in person. Sometimes online ordering can be iffy. I was relieved that everything looked just as it did on Boarderie’s website.
All their boards arrive chilled at 40 degrees. When my package arrived, it had ice packs to keep it cool and lots of stuffing so that nothing would get damaged in transit.
Is There Anything to Prepare?
Just open the box, take out the board, cut the plastic, pour the nuts in the spots where you find them, and you’re done.
How Many People Does it Serve?
Their boards come in Small (2-3 people), Medium (4-5), and Large (9-10). I ordered their large size. I had food for days! 🙂
Is the “Arte Cheese & Charcuterie Board” Worth the Cost?
At first, it seems pricey. However, the value is in the time saved preparing the board. Not to mention, every time I go to the store to buy those ingredients, I end up easily spending $150-200+ by the time I’m done buying all the meats, cheeses, jams, olives, nuts, crackers, etc. It’s well worth it in my opinion. You also get a nice 13 x 17” acacia wood board you can use again in the future. This time was a collaboration but I will definitely buy this to host parties and give as gifts.
But for me, what makes it worth it is the convenience of not having to stand at the cutting board as salami is slipping through my hands as I try to cut it and cheese crumbling underneath my knife’s blade. Not to mention, the clean up time!
How Long Does the Board Last?
The board ships to you at 40 degrees. If you’re not ready to serve, refrigerate it. It will last 7 – 10 days.
How to Order/Ship
If you like a board you see in my blog, just click the link, select the board you want and order! Easy peasy. You can even select your delivery date up to 365 days in advance and add a gift message at checkout. No more forgetting birthdays ever again!
Overall Opinions on Boarderie
The biggest thing I loved about Boarderie from the get go was how everything was already pre-packaged and ready to graze on. I loved the convenience factor. There was little to no work involved for me.
The cheeses, meats, nuts and dried fruits were already portioned, sliced and ready to eat from their adorable individual platters. It made the presentation so easy, since everything was already on display. All you had to do was take it out of the plastic and voila!
Not to mention, how amazing it is that food that beautifully displayed can arrive intact from across the country. Their shipment design is fantastic. Nothing was out of place.
Whether you’re entertaining, looking for a gift to give someone or just want a cozy charcuterie and cheese picnic date or solo date at home, you can’t go wrong with Boarderie. It takes all the fuss out of putting together a board. They do all the work for you.
