Something aged, something new, something goat, something blue!

An enormous thank you to who attended our Facebook LIVE event last night!

Chef Mike + I had a fabulous time chatting cheese and charcuterie board building with you all.  We covered lots of tips, tricks + more to hosting your own cheese and charcuterie party.  Not only did we cover perfect pairing tips, but we covered: how many cheeses to buy, the quantities of cheese/charcuterie to purchase for gatherings (per person), tools for your cheese board, cheese storage, party board prep (how to arrange, cut, design), other accoutrements (salts, jams, spreads, honey, vinegars, etc.) for adding to your board + more!​
