A lovely recipe book filled with dishes that would be brilliant on their own or adorning a charcuterie board. Beautiful pictures demonstrate ways in which to lay out items to make them look really appealing. I loved how there were lots of different recipes standing alone and then when a board theme is suggested, the recommended dishes had their recipes referred back to with page numbers so you could locate them easily.

The recipes/boards were organised thoughtfully into seasonal opportunities and based on where you might be gathering with friends. The recipes read well, are formatted spaciously and don't feel daunting. There was a great mix of savoury vs sweet and ones appropriate for different ages.

It's given me lots of ideas for an upcoming event and I will be looking to purchase this in hard copy once published.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for gifting me this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
