Start With a Base
I used a wooden cutting board as the base for my cheese board, but you could really use anything. A beautiful platter, or a unique tray would also work well. If it is larger, you don't have to worry about filling the whole thing with cheese. There are so many different elements you can add to your display that will fill the space.
Next Choose Your Favorite Cheeses
You want a variety of cheeses to make your board interesting. Stella Cheeses offer a great selection of quality cheeses to feature on your cheese board. When picking your cheeses, make sure to have a variety of hard and soft cheeses.
Fill It Up With Tasty Tidbits
This is the fun part. Fill in the space around your cheese with tasty tidbits to pair with the cheese. Here are some possibilities:
- Summer Sausage
- Nuts and Grains:
- Bread Sticks
- Savory Treats:
Finish It Off With Flowers
A few little flowers from around the yard finish off the cheese board with simple elegance. This board only took a few minutes to pull together, but it was a beautiful treat for guests!
