HOW TO PREPARE AN AWESOME CHEESE BOARD

  1. START WITH THE BOARD

Cheese boards are typically assembled on a slate or wooden tray, which may be square, rectangular, or round. But if you don’t already own one you can use a plate or a cutting board. Any flat surface will work.

  1. SELECT THE CHEESES

Try to include a variety of flavors and textures by selecting cheeses from different families. Display the cheeses different ways – spears, wedges, cubes, whole, sliced, or rolled up. Stay away from pre-sliced cheese.

  1. START WITH THE BIG ITEMS: BOWLS AND CHEESE

Start with the things that take up the most room on a cheese plate (you might add charcuterie).

  1. ADD A VARIETY OF BREADS

Sliced baguette, bread sticks, and a variety of crackers in different shapes, sizes, and flavors.

  1. ADD SOME SAVORY

Such as olives, pickles, roasted peppers, tapenades, almonds, cashews, or spicy mustards.

  1. FILL IN BIG SPACES 

Add dried fruits and candied nuts.

  1. GARNISH IT OFF WITH SEASONAL TOUCH

Add edible flowers, fresh herbs, or fruits to give your board a unique look.

TIPS

Keep in mind that cheese tastes best at room temperature. Let the cheese sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.
