Want to impress your friends and family with a delicious Cheese Board?
Here at The Gourmet Pantry, we love making Cheese Boards and sharing them with our friends and family for relaxed catchups or special occasions.
Following this step-by-step guide – using the finest crackers, olives and condiments from The Gourmet Pantry of course – makes assembling a beautiful looking Cheese Board foolproof. Cheese Boards make for an easy yet stylish way to entertain, we hope you have a great time assembling and enjoying yours!
Get a mix of cheese textures. Make sure there is a soft cheese like a Brie, a crumbly cheese like a blue cheese, and a hard cheese such as a cheddar or parmesan. Ensure you get a mixture of flavours with a couple of milder versions. Use a mix of shapes and colours – a pale round brie, a sharp wedge of parmesan, a square of cheddar – it all adds to the visual appeal.
Meats like salami, kabana, pancetta or prosciutto bring delicious salty flavours. Roll or place the meats around the board.
Crackers then bring the crunch. From the simple water cracker to artisan flavours, crackers are an integral part of any cheese board. Use different shapes, sizes and textures and pile them high for big impact.
Condiments are important. Add fruit pastes, dips, spreads, pesto, tapenades, mustards, chutneys, and relishes – decant directly onto the board or into small bowls or use the jar they came in straight onto the board.
Don’t forget the garnishes – try rosemary, parsley, or edible flowers.
Finish with your finest cheese knives and then get ready to wow your guests.
