This back story made it to my October 2018 newsletter as I made this for a dear college friend to celebrate her 60th birthday, Lori Kuipers. And it took some time to research how to put a good cheese board together but after that, it was easy to assemble. So, I want to share my tips with you. First off, use any type of board or platter you have, or simply go buy one. And this is the easy breakdown… cheese, cured meats, nuts, something sweet, crackers and bread, and olives. My recipe for a cheese charcuterie board gives you the essentials for this fun appetizer.
