IRVINE, CALIF. – Food stylist Meg Quinn has created two seasonal charcuterie boards exclusively for the California Avocado Commission.
“California avocados are the must-have attraction for this year’s charcuterie boards, and it doesn’t matter if you fancy savory or sweet – they’re the perfect ingredient to take your hosting skills to the next level,” according to the commission. “With fresh and delicious fruit available now through summer, the California Avocado Commission encourages consumers to get creative in the kitchen and experience the great taste and creamy goodness in-season California avocados have to offer.”
Quinn is the founder of Ain’t Too Proud to Meg, a blog destination for great food and hosting tips aimed to inspire creativity in the kitchen. She has been featured on the Food Network, Hallmark Channel, E!, Dr. Oz, Better Homes & Gardens and more.
“Entertaining is my passion and there’s nothing better than incorporating fresh, locally sourced produce on board creations,” said Quinn. “I love to add vibrant colors and versatile ingredients, which is why in-season California avocados pair beautifully with other flavors, elevating any dish and recipe. Whether you’re creating a crowd-pleasing avocado rose or whipping up a creamy avocado dip as the centerpiece of your board, the opportunities with California avocados are endless.”
Quinn’s creativity, attention to detail and love for California avocados is showcased in her two new boards, sure to satisfy every craving. Her savory California Avocado, Cheese & Charcuterie Board is paired with a mouth-watering California Avocado Goat Cheese Dip topped with crispy prosciutto and served alongside a variety of meats, cheeses and colorful produce.
For those with a sweet tooth, Quinn’s California Avocado and Fruit Board will hit the spot. It features a rich and creamy Chocolate California Avocado Dip perfect for dipping berries and, for a delightful treat, a flavor-packed Honey Citrus California Avocado Dip that pairs well with apples, oranges and other fresh fruit.
