Where is Bournemouth’s best board?

Food4Media_United_Kingdom_medium-sized_1272157_how_to_make_a_charcuterie_board_1The term ‘charcuterie board’ sounds horribly pretentious – but meat, cheese, bread, olives, oils, what’s not to love? Now the good people of Bournemouth are being urged to nominate their favourite sharing platter in the awards run by BritishCharcuterie.live.

Think of restaurants, bars, cafes and delis around the town. Which has the freshest produce? The finest selection? The most unusual presentation?

The search is on for the most appealing boards from all over the UK, awarding a monthly finalist and an overall national winner.

Nomination open on March 15 – anyone can enter, even bar or pub owners themselves! All they need do is post a good and accurate image of the award-worthy charcuterie board on their Instagram page, tag it @britainsbestcharcuterieboards and @tracklements, add the hashtag #BBCharcuterieBoards and identify the location.

Each month there will be one winner chosen by the judges, who include Guy Tullberg MD of Tracklements, Henrietta Green co-founder of BritishCharcuterie.live and Josh Barrie journalist & Charcuterie Lover.

The national winner will be selected from the monthly winners by public vote taking place in the British Charcuterie Tent at BBC Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace from August 2-5.

Prize winners and their nominees will enjoy a delicious selection of products from sponsors Tracklements, artisan makers of award-winning condiments, and a pair of tickets for BBC Countryfile Live.

“British charcuterie is much more than just mirroring our foreign cousins. Our producers create great-tasting products, some new with distinctly different ingredients and characteristics, and others echoing our heritage,” said Henrietta Green and Charlotte Sharpe-Neal, co-founders of BritishCharcuterie.live.
