With the abundant selection of artisan cheeses and meats these days, you don’t need to be a great cook to pull off a holiday party — a trip to your local specialty foods store will do the trick! If a cheeseplate or salumi platter is in your future, the San Francisco Chronicle has some advice for you. Take it to heart!
Entertaining with cheese and salumi means no late-night pots to wash. Leftovers in decent condition can be wrapped and refrigerated for an impromptu party for one in the days that follow.
