This year is set to be one of excitement, unity and jubilation in the UK with the momentous Coronation of King Charles. Not forgetting the honour of hosting the Eurovision for the first time in 25 years.

Whether a glamorous gathering or joining a joyous street party, food is the key to connecting communities and joining together in celebration.

Shareable and customisable to suit everyone’s taste, grazing boards have become the go-to culinary choice for celebratory occasions. In the spirit of coming together to mark these momentous occasions, impress with a feast fit for a king with a tailor-made ‘Guacuterie’ board.

Inspired by the French art of charcuterie which involves arranging cold meats and cheeses on a single platter, grazing boards can be tailored to taste, diet and theme. The beauty is in the bespoke – with the latest take on the traditional platter made unique by a mouth-watering centrepiece of avocado-based guacamole.

Accompanied by an artisan selection of other delicious foods such as cheeses, fruit, and vegetables, you can create a picture-perfect platter of pleasure.

World Avocado Organization has an array of exclusive delicious dip recipes that are colourful alternatives to traditional guacamole. The silky texture of avocados is what makes this superfood the perfect ingredient for smooth dips that taste as indulgent as cream-based, but are a much healthier alternative.

Versatile and nutritious, avocados are a superior source of energy to power those dancing shoes, supply much more energy per kilogram than many other fruits and vegetables and are a natural source of essential minerals and vitamins, including magnesium, copper, potassium, manganese, C, E, K vitamins and B-group vitamins.
