​​The easiest way to anyone’s heart is cheese. South’s charcuterie headquarters, and home of the original Brunch Board: Bagels, bacon, bloodys and bubbles!

Sara Cox grew up in Savannah, loving every minute of being immersed in the low country’s laid-back lifestyle. 

After earning an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts from Ogeechee Technical College in Statesboro, Cox ventured back home to Savannah. Restaurant jobs followed, where she truly learned all the various aspects of being a chef.  But feeling a little burned out after five years in the trade, Cox decided to take a step back from ‘the line’ and went into the administration side of the industry.

Cox missed the creativity of the culinary world, however, and it was early in 2020 when a serendipitous (pun intended) event turned her thoughts in a very interesting direction.

She had been reading about how certain caterers were doing ‘grazing tables’ as an extension to a small charcuterie board, so she threw a party, asking each person to bring a selection of cheeses. The rest, as they say, is history! Cox began sharing her creations on Instagram and amassing a loyal following.

This propelled the creation of Sarandipity Fare, where she happily shares her love of food through ultimate charcuterie and brunch boards, as well as artful grazing tables for larger events. So, whether you are having a few people over for brunch, a bachelorette party, or planning a major event, a quick call to Sarandipity Fare will guarantee your catering will be the talk of the town! And, for the epi-curious, call and book a class where you can learn how to create an award winning charcuterie board of your own.
