As the winner of Bravo's Top Chef Season 16, Kelsey Barnard Clark knows her way around an oven. But the culinary pro also has a certain no-cook recipe that's sure to wow 'em every time, and she recently took to Instagram to spill her secret.
To caption a photo of gorgeous platters piled high with nuts, fruits, cheeses, and more, Kelsey wrote, "There’s nothing in the world to me that is better than a good charcuterie board." She added, " I had a friend ask what the secret was to a good spread and I thought I’d share my little rule of thumb I go by."
Ready to take notes? Here's Kelsey's master class in the art of charcuterie arranging:
"• 1 hard, soft and semi-hard cheese
• 2 spreads/ condiments (honey, jam)
• 3 fruits & dried meats
• 4 crunch (pickles, wasabi peas, nuts, olives)
• 5 dippers (crackers, pita, bread, veg crudité)"
And there you have it! To get a little more inspiration, take a look at the photo Kelsey posted, below:
