Here's what you'll need...

You'll Need:

– brie cheese wheel – blue stilton cheese – cheddar cheese – manchego – fig jam – honey – Italian dry salami – sweet gherkin pickles – Castelvetrano olives – red seedless grapes – pomegranate


Place the brie wheel, blue stilton, cheddar, and manchego cheese spaced out on four corners of the cheese board. Top brie with a few tablespoons of fig jam and drizzle with honey.


Pile the salami and prosciutto next to two of the cheeses on the board. You can fold the salami to add an extra layer of dimension to your cheese board.


Add the fig jam, sweet gherkins, and Castelvetrano olives into small bowls. Place in any open space on the cheese board.


Place the grapes and pomegranate wedges next to the cheese. Pile dried apricots and cranberries into any open space available.


Fill in the remaining spaces with pistachios, walnuts, and crackers. Serve ciabatta bread on a plate alongside the cheese board. Serve and enjoy immediately.


This cheese board can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve. Wrap the entire cheese board in plastic wrap before placing it in the refrigerator to store. You should wait to add the crackers/bread until serving.
