Charcuterie boards have long been among the go-to options to offer guests when you have them over for dinner or for a picnic in the sun.
But as time wears on, some people have become bored with this stock standard presentation of cold meat and cheese, and have looked at other ways of presenting the food.
These people have gone above and beyond and have begun to create charcuterie chalets. Yep - you read that right. People have been making houses out of breadsticks, cold meat, cheese and vegetables.
Forget gingerbread houses, charcuterie chalets are now all the rage.
The decorations in this particular brand of grazing board are incredible. Some have used shredded cheese to recreate the look of snow, others have surrounded the chalet in hummus. Some even carve up capsicum to make sleds and others use sprigs of rosemary to make trees. The possibilities are seemingly endless.
Since debuting on social media, people have been well and truly blown away.
One person wrote: "I love this! We are planning menu for Christmas and would be so fun to make one of these (very mini version maybe)."
Another added: "Anyone else think watching a time lapse of this thing cooking in the oven would be oddly satisfying and disgusting?"
A third said: "Omg I went to make this. I can't eat cow's milk products so a traditional gingerbread is hard to do. But a meat house with goat cheese to use as glue and flatbread crackers for stabilisation? Heck yes I can make that happen!"
Inevitably, there are some who aren't sure whether the whole chalet vibe resonates with them.
A user said: "All I can think of is how much more every single piece of cheese and meat has been touched than on a normal charc board. Just covered in finger grease and sweating into the cheeses."
Another added: "Too much processed meat not for me."
Hey look, it's not going to be for everyone, but you can rest assured that charcuterie chalets will pop up all over your social feeds in the lead-up to Christmas.
