Instructions

  1. Start with a good large wood board. One of my favorites is our 36″ x 12″ walnut wood board because it can span down the middle of a table or island, which is great for a crowd to easily gather around. It makes for a wonderful entertaining experience.
  2. Wash the fresh fruits and leave them to dry.
  3. Place the honey, fig butter, orange marmalade, strawberry jam, dijon mustard and anything juicy or brined foods you want to keep from getting on the other foods, such as the olives and cornichons, in serving bowls on the board first.
  4. Next arrange the cheeses, meats, grapes and crackers on the board. Spreading each of these larger items out across the board so you can fill in the remaining spaces with the smaller foods.
  5. Finish by filling in the board with all of the nuts and dried fruits and then the pear and apple slices. It’s okay for items to touch each other and overlap. You want it to be abundant.
  6. Serve each cheese with a cheese knife, spreader or fork. Place a spreader or spoon in each of the spreads. Serve and enjoy!
