How To Create the Picture-Perfect Spring Cheeseboard

Who doesn’t love a good cheese board and some charcuterie? I know for a fact that when I see brie, prosciutto and artisan crackers or bread, I don’t hesitate for a second to devour the combination. You guys know that I’m on a healthy eating plan these days, but I wanted to make a delectable spread for Mackenzie’s birthday dinner that we hosted last weekend. I’ve always wanted to make one, and decided to go all out for this special occasion. I stocked up on some of our favorite cheeses and Italian meats, plus yummy spreads and snacks to bring it all together. Learn how to make your own picture-perfect Spring cheeseboard below!

Whether you’re serving your cheeseboard as an appetizer or the main event, you can’t really mess it up, and it’s always a hit with your guests. Here are a few things you need

The Cheeses

Now as a cheese lover, this is the part I get most excited about. When choosing your cheeses, it’s best to keep it to just three to four kinds, and choose your favorites. I decided to go with some of mine, which are manchego, sharp Vermont cheddar, brie, and some herbed goat cheese. Of course, don’t limit yourselves to my choices – anything goes!

The Meats

As for the meats, keep a good ratio with the cheeses, so three to four will do as well. I bought a variety selection of different types of salamis, and even opted for prosciutto wrapped cheese wands. Yum!

Fruits and Other Snacks

This is where you can get really creative with your color scheme. The accoutrements are where you can play with the overall look of the board. I think it’s so gorgeous to add some fresh and dried fruits, jams, savory spreads, olives, and nuts. Plus, each of these flavors goes perfectly with cheese!

The Crackers & Bread

I’m a huge fan of rustic artisan breads and crackers. It’s nice to have a variety, like wheat, garlic, sesame seed, or even simple water crackers. A fresh French baguette or loaf is always a great choice, and you can often find great options for crackers at your local deli.

Supplies
3-4 cheeses
3-4 meats
Miscellaneous foods (fruits, jams, nuts, etc.)
Various assortment of crackers
A board of your choice
Cheese knives
Serving platters
Bowls

The rule of thumb when you’re arranging your board is to start by laying down the cheeses first. They are the main attraction, after all! Next, add the meats, and then fill in the extra spaces with the accoutrements.

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.
