We've Gone Grazy!

We've Gone Grazy!

Loaded with small bites, grazing boards are more than just cheese & charcuterie. They are perfect for casual get-togethers, or even a quick no-cook meal. They are easy to throw together, and we've got all the ingredients you'll need when you Customize Your Box. We hope these simple steps fill you with inspiration to build your dream board.    

We've Gone Grazy!

CHEESE

The star of the show is typically cheese. We think it's important to offer a variety of flavors and textures. We recommend choosing a hard, more mature cheese like Carmody from Bellwether Farms, a soft cheese like Fresh Goat Cheese with Kalamata Olives from Laura Chenel and a fresh cheese like Nicasio Valley Cheese Company's Foggy Morning Cheese.   

For those looking for a vegan, or dairy alternative cheese for their grazing board, look no further! Miyoko's Creamery has cracked the code to crafting authentic cheese from wholesome and sustainable plant milk using traditional creamery artistry such as culturing and aging. These delicious cheeses look, taste, and performs like dairy. Some would even say they taste even better than dairy too.

CHARCUTERIE 

Sliced meats like salami, sausage, prosciutto, and sopressata, are tasty additions, and classic charcuterie options for your board. Like cheese, offering a variety of textures and flavors will make your board even more fun. For a lovely presentation, fold some of the meat and fan out others, but keep each piece an optimal serving size.

FUN & FLAVORFUL PAIRINGS 

To help get your grazing goodies from the table to your tummy, you'll need some sliced bread or crackers as an accoutrements. We offer many different styles of Take-and-Bake breads from Essential Baking Company, and a good variety of hearty, savory crackers to complete your board.

Fresh fruit, dried fruit, or fruit preserves will complement the saltiness of the cheese, meat and crackers. Nuts are a great ingredient to fill empty space on your board, and these finishing touches offer additional textures and colors for a more appealing presentation.
