Grazing Boards keep brunch guests happy this holiday season

Versatile holiday entertaining features the younger, cooler sibling of the Charcuterie Board

Avocado toast fatigue is real. And so is the calendar squeeze for entertaining options during the holidays — not every event can fit into the evening. Enter the new trend for holiday entertaining — grazing boards. Versatile enough to cover breakfast, brunch or lunch, these simple yet eye-pleasing spreads please every palate, from sweet to savory. And they can be on the table in just minutes. And while it looks extremely similar to the Charcuterie board, it’s actually designed to fill you up.

Chef Jonathan Davis of La Brea Bakery, the pioneer of American artisan bread, understands the tension between creating wonderful food and having enough time to enjoy the season. “People are pressed for time during the holidays,” said Davis. “Whether it’s trying to connect with friends and family or to prepare meals. Grazing boards offer a new way to entertain that’s simple, elegant and extremely versatile. It limits preparation time and puts the focus on flavors.”
