Now that we’ve celebrated Christmas, the countdown to 2022 has begun! And rarely, except maybe for last year, have so many been so ready to leave the old year behind and greet the new. But, many of us, due to the recent provincial health office restrictions, have found ourselves having to make alternative plans for our New Years Eve celebrations and will be celebrating at home with a small group of friends and family. But that’s no reason to not serve your snacks and appetizers in a fun and festive way. And charcuterie, or grazing, boards, is one of our favourites! Here are a few spots in Surrey to pick up an impressive charcuterie board, or the supplies to make your own.
