How To Make The Ultimate Cheese Board

Step by Step Instructions for Making The Ultimate Cheese Board!


  • Use a mix of hard and soft cheeses
  • Brie, Delice and Camembert are all soft cheeses that are total crowd pleasers
  • For blue cheeses, you can try Roqueforts or gorgonzolas for something more mild
  • I like to drizzle blue cheese with honey to an interesting salty/sweet combo
  • Add dimension to your cheese board by adding a variety of textures and colors with crackers, nuts and fruit
  • Ask to have deli meats sliced extra thin
  • My go-to meats are prosciutto, hot capicola and pepperoni
  • Make the board look full by spreading out the meats and cheese and filling in with the other accoutrements like fruit and veggies, nuts – both candied and salty, olives, and dips like hummus or ranch dressing
  • Add crackers like rice crackers, wafers, sourdough crackers, nuts + seeds crackers
