The holiday season is upon us and many of us will be gathering with family and friends during the next couple of months. Our gatherings tend to involve food and cheese always plays a big part in our food spread. Cheese is delicious, goes with pretty much everything and the variety of flavors is plentiful, so today I’m sharing how to make the best cheese board that your guests will rave about.
A delicious cheese board always starts with the cheese so of course you want to use the best and tastiest varieties. Stella offers a variety of delicious quality cheeses so it’s only natural that a great cheese board would start with a couple of Stella Cheeses. Putting together a cheese board is super easy and doesn’t require any cooking. That’s one of the things that makes cheese boards perfect to serve at gatherings.

How to Make the Best Cheese Board
I chose Stella Black Peppered Romano Cheese and Stella Fontinella Cheese to center my cheese board around. I even found these cool mini chalkboards so that guests will know which varieties they’re enjoying. Next, add some red grapes and green apples. Then add some nuts – pistachios, walnuts and pecans are all good choices. A light cracker is a great addition and also small slices of mini french bread.
Grab a nice cutting board or even a platter and start adding items to your cheese board. Start with the cheese and add the rest of the items around them. Pop a couple of cheese knives in the mix and add the mini chalkboards next to its featured cheese. See, the best cheese board really is that simple to put together!
You’ll likely have extra fruit, crackers, bread and nuts so just replenish those items when they’re starting to get low. Which Stella Cheeses varieties would you choose for your Stella cheese board?
