  • 1 Aged, firm cheese (Sharp Cheddar, Parmesan, Mimolette)

  • Chocolate (dark, orange, chili)
  • Candied oranges
  • Honeycomb
  • Spreads (fig, orange, berry)

  • About an hour before, allow the cheese to sit out and come to room temperature.
  • Tear bread into small chunks, organize crackers.
  • Portion items in marinades, oil, or jams into small bowls or ramekins.
  • Working in sections, place your items in order from sweet to savory, making sure to keep GF and meat items separate for guests that are avoiding them.
  • Place various cheese on the board, making sure to slice, chip, or carve pieces to encourage guests to dig in.
  • Once most items are places, fill in the blank spots with sliced fruits and nuts.
  • Replenish as needed


A good rule of thumb when buying cheese is to have about 2 ounces per guest. When it comes to other items, always make sure you have extra supplies to replenish throughout your event.
