How to Make a Simple Cheese Board

I squeal like a little girl inside when I walk into a party and there’s a fabulous cheese platter.

I. LOVE. CHEESE. That’s why I’m sharing my Charcuterie Board Basics.

What is a Charcuterie Board?

When referring to a charcuterie board, it’s basically foods like meat, cheese, olives, fruit, nuts, and spreads that require little to no preparation before serving.

Tools you’ll need

To craft the perfect cheese board, you need to start with the right tools.

These are the four categories: 1. aged 2. blue 3. soft 4. firm

For a fabulous cheese platter, try to include different flavors and textures by choosing one cheese from each category.

To get a range of different flavored cheeses on your plate is by choosing cheeses that are made from different types of milk.

Splurge a little when you’re creating a cheese platter, especially when it’s a holiday.

If you are serving the cheese as an hors-d’oeuvre, then you should plan on a total of 2-3 ounces of cheese for each person.
