1 Start by selecting the right board for your spread. You can use large cutting boards, slate boards, or large marble or ceramic platters.
2 Once you know how many guests you’ll have, you can begin choosing your meats. You’ll want 3-4 slices of meat per person, but also a variety of flavors and textures.
3 Select 1-2 oz. of cheese per person, again choosing a variety of flavors and textures. I recommend balancing soft and hard cheese and mild and robust flavors.
4 Add in a fresh seasonal fruit; we used grapes!
5 Add in a sour kick with your favorite pickle flavor.
6 Add in an assortment of crackers in both shape and flavor.
7 Begin assembling your board – think of your board as a blank canvas and let your creativity flow. I recommend starting with the larger items and then filling in from there.
