There really isn’t a recipe for this cheeseboard, but the other day I ordered an individual cheeseboard in a restaurant and absolutely loved it.
Aim for 2-4 cheeses with different tastes and textures. For this cheeseboard, I selected Swiss Cheese for some cheese with a bite and goat’s cheese for the creamy cheese selection. I wish I had some blue cheese on hand as it would go great with it to add that cheese with a punch element.
Add dried nuts and fruit. Maybe some fresh fruit or berries. Definitely crunchy bread or crackers.
For crunch and acidity, I added some cornichons and olives. Feel free to add some pickles.
Last but not least – savoury and sweet saucy element. Here, I’m using a bit of apricot jam and Dijon mustard that I sweetened with a bit of creamed honey.
What a lovely treat for yourself, to share with someone or for your guests to replace a traditional dessert. This also makes a wonderful appetizer!
