Ingredients

  • 3-4 blocks variety of cheese (brie, aged cheddar, pepper jack, cream cheese topped with hot pepper jam)
  • 2-3 cured meats (prosciutto, pancetta, capocollo)
  • 1 cup variety of antipasto (garlic cloves, sun-dried tomatoes, stuffed olives, marinated mushrooms)
  • 2 sprigs herbs (thyme and rosemary)
  • 1 loaf french baguette

Instructions

  • Grab a large serving platter or wooden board.  Place cheeses on board first, and arrange so they are spread out from one another.  Cut a couple pieces of each to get it started.
  • Arrange meats around cheese blocks.  For the thinly sliced meats, pinch them in the middle and lay on the board to where it almost makes a tent.
  • Take antipasto items and fill in open spaces of the board.  Top off with nuts, sprigs of herbs, and serve with bread and/or crackers.
