  • 3-5 cheeses, ideally with a blue, a soft, and a firm cheese

  • Bread and/or crackers

  • Something sweet: fruit, chutney, etc.

  • Something crunchy: nuts or seeds

  • Olives and/or pickles

  • Cured meat

  • Dip or spreads


Assemble all the ingredients on your board or plate, using small bowls for things like pickles and dips. Ingredients look beautiful in groups. Consider colour in your choice of accompaniments as well as flavour and texture.
