Chattanooga's Bleu Fox Cheese Shop prepares charcuterie boards for parties of two or two hundred

If there's a food trend that's in high fashion at the moment, it would have to be the charcuterie board.

"Blame it on TikTok and Instagram," says Brittany Watlington, co-owner of Bleu Fox Cheese Shop along with her husband, Jesse. "But they do offer the perfect variety of foods. You've got everything there -- salty, sweet, creamy, crunchy. You get all the tastes and textures."

Good for parties of two or 200, they are simple, delicious, and when done correctly -- a work of art. At Bleu Fox, customers choose from a selection of artisanal meats and cheeses, then accoutrements like cherry peppers, olives, dried fruit, crackers and pickles are chosen to complement the savory flavors.

Depending on the event, Bleu Fox can prepare arrangements from individualized cheese cups (everything you love about a cheese plate, but in a cup) to festive grazing tables for large parties. For more on catering options, seasonal offerings and specialized arrangments, visit:
