Instead of a Gingerbread house, try a Charcuterie Chalet!


Every year, my lovely Wife and I make a neat little Gingerbread house over an evening, and every year it just sits there un touched and uneaten and we end up throwing it out. It is a complete waste of food.

Not everyone is a big fan of sugar either, and that's totally okay. So instead of making one, I recommend a tasty, delicious, Charcuterie Chalet. You could call it a meat house even?

These houses look like they can be gussied up any which way, and that makes me happy, just look at this guy!

But the combinations are truly endless with a house like this. Don't like parmesan for snow? Try making a Gouda snowman! 

Also, look at the nice touch of Rosemary on this next one!
