Welcome to The Cheese Board Deck
, your simple and colorful guide to arranging beautiful, abundant boards. By the way, this deck isn’t limited to styling cheese and charcuterie. While you’ll find plenty of cards devoted to the more traditional use for a cheese board, you'll also find that you can serve all our favorite foods this way. And once you get started, grazing boards will soon become your go-to meal for every occasion, from lazy nights in to holiday celebrations—and for breakfast, lunch, dinner, AND dessert.
As the daughter of a caterer, I learned from a very young age that people eat with their eyes. My mother taught me the art of presentation and the simple things you can do to make people want to dig in as soon as you set down the food. This deck packs all her wisdom—and more—into 50 fun and inspiring instruction cards. HOW TO USE THIS DECK
Think of this deck as your very own food styling school—designed to be a resource and to fuel your creativity. I’ll arm you with everything you need to build delicious spreads. On each card, you’ll find a photo guide, a shopping list, helpful tips and instructions, and easy (totally optional) recipes. For the recipes, note that the ingredients you will need appear in bold within them.
Take a card to the market for gathering your ingredients, then set it by your side at home as you assemble your board. Copy these boards exactly if you want, or use these food styling techniques and recommendations to build out boards of your own design.
