I LOVE a good cheese board. They make a beautiful display for any occasion and offer options for even the pickiest guest. I like to make sure to include a variety of cheeses, fruits, nuts, meats, dried fruit, veggies, olives, crackers, anything pickled, dips and always something sweet like honey or fig preserves. To make for an eye catching display make sure to cut your cheese selections into different sizes and shapes and fold your charcuterie into easy to grab pieces. For a larger group and a larger display I always pre-cut a majority of the cheese options to make for an easy pickup and eat situation. Edible flowers are a great way to add a pop of color if you can find them at your local grocery store. If you’re looking for an impressive way to host happy hour load up on all the ingredients, pre-cut everything and store it in zip top bags in the fridge and assemble your board(s) right before your guests arrive. Pop open some wine and enjoy your party without having to heat up your kitchen or keep up with food while you entertain!
