Emmy Rener is 20-year-old college student and founder of professional charcuterie business, Sophisticated Spreads.
When Emmy Rener was a senior in high school, she transformed her childhood hobby making cheeseboards into Sophisticated Spreads, a professional charcuterie board business based in Southern California.
The university college student told Insider she now charges clients up to $25,000 to prepare massive boards for special events, including grazing tables, which are large spreads that cover entire countertops or dining tables with meats, cheese, fruits, nuts, and other nibbles.
Through it, Rener has gained quite a following on her TikTok account @sophisticatedspreads. More than 237,300 users follow her videos, some of which have well over three million views.
Rener spoke with Insider to share her tips for what goes into a delicious spread — and what doesn’t.
