One of the most popular questions we get asked is - what menu item is the best for my event? Between our charcuterie board cones and our large grazing platters, we offer different options to fit your needs and events. Each menu item offers a different amount of food selections as well as serves different amounts of people.
Before we dive into our menu options, let’s talk about what a charcuterie board and/or grazing platter is and why they are so wonderful! If you are in Utah and need a catered charcuterie offering, this is for you!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHARCUTERIE BOARDS AND GRAZING PLATTERS?
As a Utah-based charcuterie board caterer, we offer both charcuterie boards and grazing tables. Both are casual ways for you and your friends and guests to nosh. Charcuterie boards are generally served on a wooden board or platter and are smaller in size than grazing platters. Charcuterie boards are curated so that you get the perfect combination of flavors with every bite you take.
Grazing platters combine the best of cheese platters and charcuterie platters together to make one beautiful and delicious table or platter of foods. Grazing boards generally include cheeses, meats, grains/bread, fruits, vegetables, and sweets.
The Oakford Gourmet Selections Cone option is a great choice for networking events, cocktail hours, work functions, and more. They are handheld ways for an individual to get the best of a charcuterie board. Each Cone includes a few gourmet food options including meats, cheeses, grains, and fruits. Because we shop locally for seasonal foods as much as possible, we do not provide a "set menu". We like to bring that uniqueness to each menu item through its ingredients and the customer’s personal preference. Charcuterie cones can be perfect for both small and large-sized events, but not usually the best for at-home parties.
Our grazing boxes are uniquely styled personal-sized boxes that provide a delightful experience. Whether it’s for date night, an intimate gathering at home, or a virtual event across multiple addresses, we welcome your specific catering needs & delivery requests. Or, if you simply want to surprise someone special with a delicious food gift, an Oakford charcuterie box has you covered. They are also perfect for lunch on the go or a picnic date.
Charcuterie board platters are the most commonly ordered menu items. These gorgeous displays of our delicious food selections are perfect for small to mid-sized events. They include seasonal fruits, dips, veggies, cheeses, meats, and more. Platters are the perfect way to graze and are perfect for parties & receptions. Our Platters are the perfect way to graze at a home gathering or business lunch meeting!
The Oakford Gourmet Grazing tables are the grandest and most beautiful displays we offer. The tables are perfect for large-sized parties and events like wedding receptions and corporate parties. When you cater a grazing table, our artisans arrive before your event to set up the table with lined brown kraft paper, high-quality platters and boards, and eye-catching food displays. We then return later at a designated time to collect our supplies.
Whether you’re ordering a cone, box, platter, or table, we work with you to make customized, delicious, and beautiful catering for your event, whether it's a quiet night at home or a black-tie affair. Contact us today to get started on your event!
