How to Make an Easy Cheese Board in 10 Minutes

Here are the tips and tricks on how to make a KILLER cheese board! So easy, beautiful and well-balanced!

I’ve never met a cheese board I didn’t like.

And since June happens to be National Dairy Month, I thought I would share some essentials to get started.

Whether it’s a super fancy cheese board with over a dozen different types of cheeses or a simple one with a smooth stilton and some cucumbers.

There’s absolutely no discrimination, big or small, when it comes to a cheese board.

And with these tips, you can make a killer cheese board appropriate for any occasion.

Whether you have 5 guests, 20, or just yourself.

Yes, I make a cheese board for one.

Well, does Butters count?

Here’s what you need to create that epic cheese board!

The vehicle

For starters, you’ll need an actual cheese board. You can get any size – wood, marble or slate. You can find great economical boards here. And you’ll need cheese knives so you can serve each cheese with its own knife – we don’t want flavor-mingling here!

The cheeses

You want a variety of textures here. With so many brands of cheeses out there, you want to make sure you select one from a dairy farm that is responsibly produced, which is basically any cheese on the market. Be sure to pick a cheese that is fresh and nutrient-rich. You’ll be able to taste the difference. And with all this cheese talk, I think I want to visit one of these dairy farms to show you want I mean. Fun fact, dairy farms today are operating with a 63% smaller carbon footprint than back in 1944. Crazy, right?

  • Soft: burrata, mozzarella, brie, humboldt fog
  • Semi-Soft: stilton, roquefort, Gorgonzola, Fontina
  • Semi-Hard: manchego, Swiss, provolone, comte
  • Hard: cheddar, parmesan, pecorino, Asiago

The side kicks

You can’t forget the accompaniments – they go with the cheese and add a pop of color to your board, creating that “hot mess” look.

  • Bread/Crackers: baguette, ciabatta, bread sticks, crostini, multigrain crackers, water crackers, parmesan crisps
  • Fresh fruits: raspberries, tangerines, pear, grapes, olives, cornichon pickles
  • Dried fruits: apricots, figs
  • Nuts: almonds, marcona almonds, cashews
  • Spreads: apricot spread, chutney, honey
  • Garnish: rosemary
