Directions

First, make sure the meats, breads, crackers, and fruits are bite-sized. And stay away from smelly cheeses if you don’t know your guests’ preferences. Some people love them a lot. Others not so much. Better safe than sorry.


Slice the firm cheese thinly or cut it into small cubes and place a cheese knife close to the cheese board for the soft cheeses.


If you plan to have 3 types of cheese, opt for 3 types of meats. And so on.


Always include different colors, textures, and flavors.


Alternate cheeses with meats and fill the gaps with fruits, nuts, and the rest of the accompaniments. The meat and cheese board has to look full.


Use small boards for small crowds. An empty board doesn’t look too good.


Arrange the meat and cheese board 30 minutes before your guests will arrive or a few hours ahead if the board fits in your fridge. Take the board out of the fridge 15 minutes before serving. Cheese tastes better at room temperature.


Pairs Well With

Any other kinds of crackers or cheese of your choice
