1. Start by thinking about how you want to arrange your grazing board. People eat with their eyes, so how you arrange your board is super important.
2. Take your cheeses and start to arrange them on your board.
3. Next take your meats and place them close to your cheeses by far enough to be divided by crackers or fruits.
4. Now place your dips in smaller ramakins and place them around the board.
5. Now start placing your antipasti including olives around the board, keeping in mind contrasting colours.
6. Add in your fruit and vegetables near your dips.
7. Place your breads and crackers near dry sections to avoid soggy carbs.
8. Now fill in the empty spaces with your nuts and dried fruit.
9. Your final touches are bringing those big colour bursts from your fresh pinched herbs, think mint, tarragon and sage!
Tips & Tricks
1. Heat your olives with olive oil to release the natural aromas of the olives, the oil and the herbs.
2. If you have guests who are allergic to nuts, consider replacing your nuts with goji berries and sultanas.
3. Make sure your meats and your cheeses don't touch to avoid contamination.
4. Try placing small bowls of covered ice to keep your meats and cheese at a healthy temperature whilst being enjoyed for hours.
