2. Select the cheeses.

Try to include a variety of flavours and textures by selecting cheeses from different families. Ideally, there will be a mild, medium, and strong cheese.

3. Add some charcuterie…aka cured meats.

Prosciutto, salami, chorizo, or mortadella are all good options.

4. Add some savoury.

Think olives, pickles, roasted peppers, artichokes, tapenades, almonds, cashews, or spicy mustards.

5. Add some sweet.

Think seasonal and dried fruits, candied nuts, preserves, honey, chutney, or even chocolate.

6. Offer a variety of breads.

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

7. Finish it off with some garnishes.

This is a great way to give your cheese board a seasonal touch. Use edible flowers, fresh herbs, or additional fruits to give your board the look and feel you want.
