How to build a heavenly cheeseboard

Ah, cheeseboards. Arguably the most photogenic of meals, a true show of indulgence and a proper team-eating experience. Cheeseboards can be the best part of a meal, if done right (or a real disappointment if not!)

Here’s how to build a heavenly cheeseboard…

Minimum of 2 great cheeses
  • 1 firm or semi-firm, such as Comte, Beaufort, or a mature cheddar.
  • 1 soft, such as Brie, Camembert, or a goat cheese.
1 / 2 cured meats
  • For those on a budget go with something like salami or parma ham, which will weigh in at a lower price point.
  • For those looking for a more indulgent cheeseboard add some Breasola or Mortadella for a taste sensation!
Assorted nuts
  • Pistachios, cashews, peanuts. Adding the sweetness and texture of nuts will complement salty, cured meats or strong cheeses.
Assorted fruits
  • Pick something in season that adds color and volume to the spread, like bunches of red and/or green grapes, figs, pomegranates or summer fruits like berries. The freshness of juicy fruits will cleanse your palate so you can keep enjoying the flavours of your heavenly cheeseboard.
Extra nibbles
  • To really make your cheeseboard pop, add some Greek olives, gherkins, pickled onions or stuffed vine leaves if you’re feeling particularly impressive!
