How to assemble a cheeseboard

Step one: Start with the board. We chose a large wooden butcher's block, but you can use any wooden board, stone or even small plates for individual servings.

Step two: Select your cheeses. We recommend choosing at least three different textures and styles (i.e. a soft cheese, an aged hard cheese, and something pungeant). 

Step three: Add charcuterie. Some of our favorite cured meats include prosciutto, salami, coppa & soppressetta. We also love the addition of patés and rillettes.

Step four: Add a savory element. We recommend things like olives, pickles, roasted peppers, tapenades, mustards, and nuts. 

Step five: Add something sweet. Items such as fresh & dried fruits, jams, chocolate, candied nuts or honey are all great options.

Step six: Add bread + crackers. We love using sliced foccacia, breadsticks and crackers in a variety of shapes and textures.

Step seven: Garnish and enjoy! Try using fresh edible flowers, herbs or seasonal fruit to really make your board stand out.
