"Cheese and meat platters are a staple for my wife, Yasmin, and I. It’s fun to explore different flavor combinations and wine pairings with them. At Casa Rubia, they take cheese and charcuterie to a whole new level by highlighting the best of Spain with their own talent in the kitchen. Pair it with a great Spanish wine and you’ll be in heaven! Be sure to tell the kitchen to slow down the rest of your food—this platter will take you a while."
