EASY STEPS to create your own cheese board...
1. Pick a Board
Choose a board that reflects
the size and theme of your gathering.
• Wood cutting board
• Marble slab
• Piece of slate
• Even a serving platter works
• Get creative!
2. Add Cheese
Look for a variety of milk sources, textures, flavors, colors and shapes.
• Arrange your cheese clockwise from soft to firm.
• Try to include a cow's milk, ... sheep milk, and goat milk ... cheese.
3. Add Salt
Pick three of your favorite salty foods to add to your cheese board.
• Marcona almonds or pistachios
• Salami, soppressata or prosciutto
• Assorted olives
• Pickled gerkins
4. Add Sweet
Fresh and dried fruits are a great way to break up rich and salty foods.
• Dried apricots or cranberries
• Fresh berries and grapes
• Freshly sliced apples and pears
5. Add Bread
Give your guests a variety of crunchy crackers and breads.
• Classic Carr’s table water crackers
• Stew Leonard’s fresh baked crostini

Place small bowls within your platter to add flavor and texture.

General Rule of Thumb
• Creamy cheeses with creamy whites or sparkling wines, like Brie and
• Hard, savory cheeses with fruit-forward red wines, like Cheddar and Zinfandel.
