How to create a Cheese Board Recipe

How to create a Cheese Board

Serving size varies
Nothing pleases our cheesemongers like being asked to help design a cheese board. They recommend a mix of types-bold, soft, blue, aged and fresh cheeses. Garnish with bites from our Antipasti bar and the party’s started. Give your cheeses plenty of room to breathe on the board; remove from the fridge one hour before your guests arrive and cover loosely with plastic until it’s time to dig in.

Ratings and Reviews

“All great choices! add to the cheddar list the cotswold type carried at the metropolitan. also, my guests have enjoyed the original triscuits with the cheddars.”
“Very helpful!”
“Leaving a 5 star review to counterbalance the individual that left only 1 star because they felt that one category was too heavily represented. think of the audience this is for, people reading a how to make a cheese board guide probably aren't ready to be adventurous. i think this is a great guide and look forward to making one soon, thanks!”
