Are you ready to put together a drool-worthy charcuterie board? Platterful, the first all-in-one charcuterie kit, makes it easy with everything you need delivered right to your door! Your box also comes with step-by-step instructions and hints to take your board to the next level.
Platterful sent me their Large Charcuterie Board Kit in exchange for a review, and it was a big hit at a little gathering of friends. Read on to learn all the details about this unique subscription box!
DIY Charcuterie in a Box
Your Platterful box arrives with everything securely packed, and your meats and cheeses are kept cool with ice packs. My kit came with three cheeses, two meats, crackers, honey, fig spread, mustard, nuts, olives and chocolate. The instructions suggested adding strawberries and rosemary. I happened to have some grapes, so I went with those, because grapes always work on a charcuterie board!
The cheeses and meats included are really nice choices, as are the accompaniments. They also send little bowls and spoons for the spreads, and a little honeycomb dipper for the honey.
The instruction card included tells you step-by-step how to place everything on your board. If you don’t already have a board, they do have them for purchase on the website, along with cheese knives. If you are more of a visual learner, just use the QR code on the instructions and you can watch a video of how to put everything together. That’s also where you’ll find the “Pairs Well With” and an “Artisan Spotlight” for each box that show you what adult beverage would go well with the flavors in the kit.
I found it really easy to follow the directions, and I definitely learned a little about how to set up my boards in the future. I ended up not using the little bowls and just put the spoons right in the spreads, because I knew my friends would be going through them pretty quick and I didn’t want to have to keep refilling them.

I was impressed by their secure shipping, where everything arrived fresh and not even one broken cracker! I also felt that everything very high quality. The price is also very fair – To go out and purchase each item individually, it would add up to close to what the box costs, but without going to the store and finding each item.
