Sarah Gim, the blogger behind The Delicious Life is credited for coming up with the fry board concept and her Instagram snaps of some of her creations are nothing short of stunning.

"Things have gone way beyond just cheese and charcuterie," Gim told Insider. "You can really put anything on your board that's inspiring at the time."

"I have noticed some restaurants picking up on the trend," she said. "I love seeing people add their own twist to it."
