Charcuterie Board

Updated: Aug 21, 2021

If you have always wanted to approach a cheese board from a conceptual perspective, like me, this might be helpful.


It all started with me finding a print for a cheeseboard on Esty from PrintsbySasha. I wasn't looking for a print for a cheeseboard. From there, I ended up with a cheeseboard. Seems like a pretty normal flow of events.


I did some research about what should go on a cheeseboard and found the information on the cheeseboard print to be mostly accurate. So I then created a shopping spreadsheet so I could build my own cheese board based on what was available without stressing! Hope you find it useful :).


Let us begin with the finished product. The ingredients for this board are from #traderjoes, #tanakafarms and #bevmo. We were very pleased.


Here is the link to the cheeseboard guide. To the build your cheeseboard, follow this link to the spreadsheet I created :)




INGREDIENTS

  • Brie

  • Sharp White Cheddar

  • Chevre with honey

  • Port Salut

  • Trader Joe's Sweet & Spicy Pecans

  • Trader Joe's Dry, Roasted & Salted Pistachio's

  • Trader Joe's Fig and Olive Crisps

  • Trader Joe's Social Snackers

  • Trader Joe's Gluten Free 3 Seed Beet Crackers

  • Trader Joe's Organic Strawberries

  • Trader Joe's baguette's, sliced, seasoned and toasted

  • Tanaka Farms Orange Blosson Honey

  • Tanaka Farms Jalapeno Mango Jelly

  • BevMo Liquer Filled Chocolate bottles


PROCESS:


There are slightly different approaches to making cheeseboards with some general principles. I followed the idea of placing the bigger items first, like the blocks of cheese, fruits, jams, plate of cornichons. I left enough room around the cheese blocks to place the type of crackers that I thought were best with that cheese (ex. I love the combination of the fig crisps and the honey chevre). I then filled in the gaps with nuts.
