The Ultimate Cheese Board Guide
- Cheese: this, of course, is the staple of your board, hence the cheese board. So it is wise to start off with a variety of cheeses. You can do a hard cheese ( like gouda), blue cheese, a soft cheese (like brie). Other good choices like American, Muenster, sharp cheddar, mozzarella or even the childhood favorite cheese wiz.
- Cured meats: finely sliced meat such as salami, coppa, prosciutto. Adding these charcuteries will jazz up any board.
- Spread: Simple spreads such as pesto or sun-dried tomato spread is a great additive, it also allows you to feature a cute dish or bowl for a visual statement.
- Fill in the blanks: These can be an assortment of nuts, crackers, pretzels, bread, fruit such a grapes, apple or pear slices or small garnishes.
