The Cheeseboard Perfected

A great starter to any holiday party, a beautifully staged cheese board is impressive and beautiful. Incorporate the colors of the holiday you’re celebrating, and pick a large array of quality cheeses with sweet and savory pairings. Garnish with honeycomb, nuts, and dried fruits like apricots and macrona almonds. Add fresh herbs as an accent to give your platter visual depth and energy.  Don’t forget to place it all on a fabulous board.
